This wine is rich with aromas of blackberry, cassis, mocha and hints of dried herbs, cardamom and a touch of mint. Rich and full bodied, this wine has a dense mid-palate with a round and silky texture and a long finish.

The estate lies in the heart of the Stags Leap District, the first viticultural area in the United States to be approved based on the distinctiveness of its soils. A blend of over 90% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance Merlot, it shows lovely ripe, sweet red berry and blackcurrant fruit on a well-structured palate, with good aromatics and a bright acidity which gives the finish both liveliness and length.

Stags Leap District, north of Napa, is located on the Silverado Trail and grapes were first planted there in the 1870s, with the first winery in the area being founded in 1878. Cabernet Sauvignon, for which the area is famous, was only planted in 1961 and the region was awarded AVA status in California in 1989. Chimney Rock owns 10% of the land in this very small sub-appellation and is recognised as being one of California’s premium wine estates.

The wines are made by Brazilian-born Elizabeth Vianna, who has been the winemaker at Chimney Rock since 2001. She prefers to work with fruit that is not over-ripe, looking towards balance and the vineyards to tell their tale of an individual vintage. Winemaking decisions are never compromised and 90+ marks from Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator and Robert Parker are regularly achieved.

A great choice for rich beef dishes, especially steak.
