Chimney Rock's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is beautiful, precise and impeccably balanced. Floral top note and bright red cherry/plum fruit are very nicely delineated. Medium in body and gracious, the 2016 is super expressive today. The 25% Merlot adds mid-palate softness and helps in giving the wine a good bit of early appeal.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
" The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored and features a wonderfully vibrant nose of red and black cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants with touches of rose petals, spice box and tilled soil. The medium to full-bodied palate offers crunchy black fruit with a firm structure of grainy tannins and just enough freshness on the savory finish."

James Suckling
" Very attractive dark-plum and blackcurrant aromas with nicely integrated, toasty oak and leafy notes that lead to a palate with a rich, round and very fresh feel to the coffee-laced finish. Drink or hold."

Wine Spectator
" This is a rock-solid offering, featuring dark currant and mulled raspberry fruit, laced with light savory and tobacco notes. Ends with a focused mix of fruit and cedar on the pleasantly grippy finish. Drink now through 2029. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."

" The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District is a beautiful, classic wine that does everything right. Black cherries, blackberries, licorice, scorched earth, and graphite notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, elegant, balanced Cabernet that shows the classic, straight style of the vintage nicely. It has solid structure and will put on weight with short-term cellaring, and should have 10-15 years of prime drinking."
