Chimney Rock Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District

Wine Description

Lively is the first word that comes to mind. Mouth-watering juiciness at the front palate is followed by a palate coating middle. Tannins -- velvety as expected, with a long finish.

    bright red fruit aromas...bing cherries come to mind. in tandom with the extroverted fruit...some sassy spices such as clove and even a hint of cinnamon. all of that layered with some vanilla and a hint of coffee bean.
