Color: Dark red with purple undertones.
Aroma: Beautiful dark fruit aromas of blackberry, huckleberry, vanilla, cedar, black currant and toffee. There is even a hint of lavender and violets that appears in this seductive wine.
Taste: The first sip of this wine brings to mind a sense of luxury. Lush, full, round and elegant, with a subversively long finish, it has in body as much to offer as the enigmatic aromas.
"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."
"Elegant and supple, showing herb, tobacco and tea-laced currant and black cherry flavors that are complex and well-proportioned, with a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2013. 28,840 cases made."
