    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine has a deep purple hue and a brightness in its fruit character, which is seductive. Lush aromas of cherry cola, cassis and a slight hint permeate the aromatics. This wine is elegant and round as one should expect from Stags Leap District fruit. It also has a brightness in acidity, which gives the finish of this wine both liveliness and length.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Combines firm, ripe, rich and extracted flavors of currant, cedar, blackberry and mineral with a sense of suppleness. The flavors build on the palate, ending with hints of mint, herb, cedar and espresso. Best from 2012 through 2022. 476 cases made.

    Chimney Rock’s 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a very pleasing, up-front wine graced with expressive varietal fruit, relatively soft tannin and an accessible personality. All of the elements are very nicely balanced in this mid-weight offering. An understated finish rounds things out in style. This is an excellent choice for restaurants or any occasion that requires a bottle to be served without much fuss. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018.

    The Wine Advocate

    Marked by hefty tannins, this Cabernet is a little to astringent to drink now. With blackberry, currant and mineral flavors, it should develop for a while, but it could go down quickly, so it's a gamble.
