Thirteen Years of Chanticleer Excellence
Chanticleer retained Catherine Fallis, a well known Master Sommelier, nationally known wine judge, lecturer, author and instructor to evaluate and rate every Chanticleer Cabernet Sauvignon's from our initial 2000 Vintage to our 2012 Vintage. This evaluation took place over a 3 day period to enable her to evaluate the wine as it opened up and breathed in air which helps soften the tannins and lift up the wine's true character. We are extremely proud and grateful for the results and we share them below.
2012 Chanticleer Riserva - Rated 95 - Well balanced, ready to drink now with some aeration, will age well for 7-10 years
2012 Chanticleer Sangiovese - Rated 95 - Smooth, supple and inviting like high quality food friendly Chianti Classico
