Winemaker's Notes:

Deep garnet red. Bright red fruit character, hints of black currant and cherry cola. Subtle, spicy notes of pepper, clove and cinnamon. The structure is firm, though the tannins are elegant and approachable.

About Chimney Rock Winery:

Situated on the famed Silverado Trail in Napa Valley's renowned Stags Leap District, Chimney Rock is recognized as one of the world's premier fine wine producers. Chimney Rock was established in 1980 with the goal of creating wines that would compete against the best Bordeaux. 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.
