Hook & Ladder The Tillerman Estate Bottled Chalk Hill Russian River Valley, 2017

Cal Russian River

Grape Variety

Cabernet Franc

Named after Cecil’s “tillerman” position at the back of the hookand-ladder fire truck, The Tillerman 2017 is a deliciously tasty wine with mellow dark fruit aromas, ripe fresh blackcurrants, blackberries, woody spices and liquorice root. Explosive dark fruits on the palate are complemented by a vanilla cream flavour. It’s medium bodied with a grainy texture and lingering finish. Grapes were grown on the family’s Los Amigos Ranch just south of Healdsburg in the Chalk Hill subregion. The 2017 was made from 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Cabernet Franc and 24% Merlot with a touch of Sangiovese (1%) and was matured for 18 months in a combination of American and European oak barrels.
