Situated on the fabled Silverado Trail in the world-renowned Stags Leap District of California'a Napa Valley, our beautiful Cape Dutch-inspired estate winery is recognised as one of the world's premier fine wine producer.
Blend of sau Blanc & Pinot Gris - tastes like smooth white burgundy. Very smooth with an almost sweet finish
Memorable. Round, balanced, Chunky fruit counterpoints flint like finish. Best 2013 selection so far.
loved it, tasted and bought it at the Chimney Rock winery... notes of berries and a little bacon. Drank on a special occasion last year and really enjoyed.
Three and a half glasses
Big dark fruits, smooth tannins and a great finish! I didn't get too much spice but it was a great wine. Wish it could be a daily drinker for me :) Thanks Beth & David for a great B-day present!
External Reviews for Chimney Rock Elevage
The estate's 2008 Elevage is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot. It shows good up-front fruit, but I don't find the sheer personality of the estate's finest Cabernet Sauvignons here. Sweet dark berries, licorice, mint and flowers... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Sauvignon Blanc has made some of the most famous white wines ever produced. It is with this in mind that we created Elevage Blanc. We have made a meritage style wine from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and the rarely used Sauvignon Gris. It is a unique blend based on the role model of the great white wines from Bordeaux.
Chimney Rock Elevage 2006 and all other wine from Chimney Rock are readily available to ship at discount prices. We carry many premium wine from across the world.
Wine Tasting NotesLight straw color. Honeysuckle, pear and subtle layers of floral aromas abound in this wine. Framed by balanced and delicate French Oak aromas. Full creamy texture with balanced acidity and a luscious burst of fruit in the mid-palate. This wine also has a lingering finish which hints at its aging potential.
92 points and a Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast"Less jammy and forward than the '04 Elevage, but more closed and tannic than the winery's regular 2005 Cabernet, this Bordeaux blend really needs time to show its stuff. It has obviously deep and impressive currant and blackberry flavors, but the tannins are significant. Hold until at least 2010." (12/08)Wine Spectator"Elegant, supple and well-focused, with cherry and sage aromas and bright plum and toasty spice flavors that linger toward a layered finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2013." (10/08)
