Wine EnthusiastChewy tannins surround an elegant, structured wine, classic in red cassis, licorice and woody herbs. Powerful, it retains balance from start to finish, exuding the warmth of the vintage with the relative coolness of the appellation, marrying the two sides expertly together.
Vinous"Chimney Rock's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep and sensual from start to finish. Crushed flowers, violets, cloves, menthol and blueberries wrap around the palate in a beautifully expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. All the elements are in the right place. This is an absolutely impeccable wine from Chimney Rock."
Wine AdvocateThe well-made 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses good tannic grip, a Bordeaux-styled structural personality, a dark ruby/purple color, attractive blackcurrant fruit and spice box notes and medium body. Although somewhat reserved, it promises to unfold over the next decade or more.
Wine SpectatorRestrained and lacking focus, this is complex, with cedary herb, dried berry, fresh-turned earth and dill flavors, ending with a gravelly aftertaste. Drink now through 2024.
