Chimney Rock Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
Juicy, with an upfront personality showing açai, plum and boysenberry notes mixed together with red licorice and sweet spice accents. Fleshy finish keeps the fruit pumping through nicely, with a light briar streak for cut. Drink now through 2030. 14,434 cases made.
A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and notes of baked black cherries, stewed plums and black currant jelly plus touches of garrigue, black olives and Provence herbs. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers lovely poise and expression with plenty of crunchy black fruit and a grainy texture, finishing with a lively lift.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is plump, juicy and absolutely delicious. Floral, spice and savory notes add brightness to a core of succulent dark cherry and plum fruit. Fresh and inviting with mid-weight structure, the 2018 has a lot to offer in an easygoing style that will require minimal cellaring.
