1999 Chimney Rock Elevage
|Vineyard:||Chimney Rock Winery|
Smooth and supple, with polished currant, black cherry and berry flavors. Picks up cedary oak and anise notes on the firm finish. Drink now through 2006.
Wine Spectator"Showcases the supple richness and smooth texture of Merlot, with layers of mocha-scented currant, black cherry, earth, coffee and cream notes. Intense and persistent, with a long, complex, elegant aftertaste. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2004 through 2012. "
