Winemaker's Notes:

Inky-black center with a brick-red rim. Slow-opening aromas of menthol, oak and blackberry. Intense flavors of black cherry and tea. Powerful tannins in the long, youthful finish.

About Chimney Rock Winery:

The estate's location in the Stags Leap District, Napa Valley's smallest and most acclaimed sub-appellation, allows winemaker, Elizabeth Vianna to capture this unique terroir and create wines that rival the most important wines of the world. Chimney Rock is a Terlato Family winery and embodies the family's dedication to producing wines of exceptional quality.
