I extracted a bottle of 1984 Chateau Margaux from my cellar, contemplating the petite Filet Mignon centered dining of the evening. Instead, I exchanged it for a 2009 Uptick Vineyards Chalk Hill Sauvignon Cabernet. What a wonderful decision that turned out to be. This wine is a point of reference for one of California’s greatest reds from Sonoma County. It’s a wine that waves superb quality, balance and character. The density of the wine takes mes back to classics like Napa's Georges de Latour’s Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon of 1958.
Uptick’s 2009 Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is a shining star for Cabernet Sauvignon and proves why Sonoma is one of the most exciting up and coming winemaking regions in the world. No longer is the region obsessed with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines. Sonoma, and Uptick Vineyards have instead turned towards a new classicism of vibrant fruit, focus and lustfully long finish. Uptick’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon delivers all that and more. 96 points.
