About the Wine
The Chimney Rock estate began to take shape in 1980, when Hack and Stella Wilson purchased a 180-acre parcel – which included a golf course – situated on the east side of the Silverado Trail. They built their country house based on Cape Dutch-style architecture and started planting vineyards shortly afterwards.

The first 59 acres were planted with a combination of red and white grapes, and the premier vintage of Chimney Rock estate wines was produced in 1984. In the early 1990s, the Cape Dutch-style winery building (with the massive allegorical frieze of Ganymede, cupbearer to the gods) and the tasting room were added to the estate. In 2000, the Terlato family joined the Wilson family as partners in the winery with added resources and the goal of enhancing Chimney Rock’s reputation for producing some of the world’s great estate Cabernet Sauvignons. In 2002, the remaining land, covering 46 acres, was planted entirely to Cabernet Sauvignon.

Since the Terlato family assumed sole ownership of Chimney Rock in 2004, they have had a clear vision of the potential of this great estate. They have steadfastly supported and shepherded only the highest standards in viticulture and winemaking. The Chimney Rock estate now comprises 119 acres of vineyards divided into 28 distinct blocks, allowing for highly specialized viticulture suited to each specific site.

Tasting Notes:

   A beautiful, deeply textured Bordeaux style blend from the renowned Stags Leap District of Napa Valley.  

It is widely understood that the perfect food pairing with a stellar wine can inspire a transcendent experience. At Chimney Rock, they believe that wine should be paired perfectly with many partners: music, mood, art, food, and the season of year.
   This wine opens with aromas of cherry and cocoa. Subtle hints of violets, vanilla, and caramel entice the nose, leading into the palate which is lushly textured with silky tannins and a round mid-palate, followed by a long delicate finish.
