Tasting Notes

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.

Vineyard Notes

Our 134-acre estate lies in the heart of the Stags Leap District, the first viticultural area in the United States to be approved based on the distinctiveness of its soils. With 28 distinctive vineyard blocks showing an array of different aspects, soil types, clones and rootstocks, our vineyard provides a diversity of flavors that are artfully blended to capture the holistic representation of our estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

Production Notes

The 2006 vintage represents an adventurous vintage in the Stags Leap District. Overall we experienced an interesting set of conditions during harvest - rain and wind, cold and heat. At Chimney Rock it was a particularly luxurious year because we had a tank to dedicate to every vineyard block, for the first time since the planting of what were the last nine holes of the golf course.
