This wine is a little thinner bodied while heavier on the tannins than I like. While this may correct some with time in the cellar, I believe there is better wine available in Napa at this price.

There's a bright cherry ping in the center of this wine, surrounded if not completely hidden within the tannin's fine-ground espresso roast flavor. The tannin is simple and delicious, a long, black line to connect it with braised short ribs.

Chimney Rock continues a successful string of vintages with this powerful '05. It's a distinguished wine that calls to mind the description of Stags Leap Cabernet as an iron fist in a velvet glove. Rich and full-bodied, it has lush flavors of black currants and smoky new oak. Easy to find, with 28,000 cases produced. Drink now through 2012.

Supple and harmonious, offering tapered plum, wild berry and cedar notes, with complex spices and touches of black licorice and nutmeg. Full-bodied and intense, yet elegant and stylish, ending with a subtle burst of sweet ripe plum. Drink now through 2021.

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.

This is Chimney Rockrsquo;s best Stags Leap Cabernet since the 2005, and continues a string of successful vintages. Dry and smooth and silky in the mouth, itrsquo;s pretty tannic, but very rich, offering waves of cherry, blackberry, blueberry, cocoa and sweet cedar flavors. Absolutely delicious, wonderfully elegant, and should age well for a decade.

From one of the very finest vineyards for growing Cabernet comes this big, rich and complex wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Dark red with purple undertones. Beautiful dark fruit aromas of blackberry, huckleberry. Vanilla, cedar, black currant, toffee and even a hint of lavender and violets appear in this seductive wine. The first sip of this wine brought to mind the sense of luxury. Lush, full, round, elegant -- with a subversively long finish, it has in body as much to offer as the enigmatic aromas.
