Chimney Rock Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Another homerun from one of the best producers focused only on Stags Leap District fruit for their Cabernets. Pure elegance on the palate with the silkiest of tannins. Rated 93 pts from Wine Advocate.

External Reviews for Chimney Rock Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage: 2009 06/28/2014

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with enticing scents of raspberry jam, sweet herbs and spices. There is a centeredness and a poise to the 2009 that give the wine its sense of harmony and total balance. Sweet, floral notes reappear on the engaging finish. As good as this is today, it will only be better in another 2–3 years. This is another fabulous effort from Chimney Rock. The blend is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2024.

Complex, ripe, firm and vivid dark berry, plum and black cherry fruit is elegant and refined, pure and focused, with just the right backbone. Drink now through 2024.

A lush and forward style, this ripe wine tastes of black plums and macerated cherries. it's smoky, jammy and ready for a grilled veal chop.

Deep and dense red velvet color. Bright red plum and blackberry aromas are interlaced with vanilla and hints of cocoa and clove. A voluptuous burst of fruit at the front palate followed by an enveloping mid palate with an ensuing bright delicate finish.

Elegant and supple, showing herb, tobacco and tea-laced currant and black cherry flavors that are complex and well-proportioned, with a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2013.

This award-winning Cabernet producer may very well have turned out its best effort to date with this 1996 vintage! It's authoritatively rich with lush currant and cherry, and layers of spice and vanillin oak on the finish. This wine has the approachability to drink now, but also has all the structure needed for long-term aging, where further nuances will be sure to emerge.

Dark scents of blackberry and black olive show this wine's richness up front. It has the cool feel of a conifer forest, hinting at juniper and cedar, lasting on a more peppery spice. Serve this with savory dishes, like lamb shank braised with rosemary and bay.
