Winemaker Notes

Tomahawk Vineyard is the pinnacle of the Chimney Rock estate. Comprised of a small group of vines which were planted in 2002, Tomahawk consistently produces intense, massively complex fruit. The ensuing wines are truly world-class, compelling, powerful and elegant with a remarkably lengthy finish.

Jeb Dunnuck
Even better, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Tomahawk Vineyard is brilliant all the way, sporting a saturated purple/plum color, a huge nose of blackberries, currants, scorched earth, graphite, and cedarwood, full-bodied richness, great intensity, and a deep, dense, concentrated style. It needs 7-8 years of cellaring but is a classic, structured Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that's going to have 2+ decades of longevity. Bravo.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Displaying a deep purple-black color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Tomahawk offers up aromas of black cherries, cassis and plums with hints of earth, cedar and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is very firm, tight, coiled and muscular. This is still very youthful and really needs 3-4 years in bottle to show its stuff.
Rating: 93+

Wine Spectator
Alluring, with blueberry, açaí berry and plum compote flavors, infused with lively anise and apple wood notes along the way. Fleshy, but with a very solid graphite spine imparting length and drive to the finish. Drink now through 2030.

Wine Enthusiast
This is a thick, richly layered red from the producer's site—one of the cooler sides of the vineyard. Lush on the palate, it has tender elements of black currant, smoked meat, black pepper, licorice and lavender, a complex array of elements that shows room for further evolution. Enjoy 2025–2030.

Legend has it that quick and nimble stags would escape the indigenous hunters of southern Napa Valley through the landmark palisades that sit just northeast of the current city of Napa. As a result, the area was given the name, Stags Leap. While its grape-growing history dates back to the mid-1800s, winemaking didn’t really take off until the mid-1970s after a small but pivotal blind tasting called the Judgement of Paris.

When a 1973 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon won first place against its high-profile Bordeaux contenders, like Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau Haut-Brion, international attention to the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley escalated rapidly.

The vineyards in this one-of-a-kind wine growing region receive hot afternoon air reflecting off of its eastern palisade formation. In combination with the cool evening breezes from the San Pablo Bay just south, this becomes an optimal environment for grape growing. While many varieties could thrive here, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot dominate with virtually no others, save for a spot or two of Syrah.

Stags Leap soils—eroded volcanic and old river sediments—encourage well established root systems and result in complex, terroir-driven wines. Stags Leap District reds have a distinct sour cherry and black berry character with baking spice and dried earth aromas, and supple tannins.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
