Chimney Rock Clone 7 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2006
Clone 7 skillfully displays ideal vineyard balance, and will please even the biggest palate while offering a host of bright fruit flavors and silky, elegant tannins.
The Clone 7 Vineyard is one of two mountainside vineyards at Chimney Rock. Located at the northern edge of the estate, this vineyard block is often called “Cardiac Hill” for its steep, challenging aspect. The intense sun exposure of these hills, along with the shallow, volcanic soils in this area, necessitates only the heartiest Cabernet Sauvignon clones. Our Clone 7 vines, planted in 1995 to the similarly hardy 3309 rootstock, succeed admirably, offering a muscular wine full of bright fruit flavors.
Our Clone 7 Cabernet Sauvignon skillfully displays this vineyard balance, and will please even the biggest palate while still offering a host of bright fruit flavors and silky, elegant tannins to those who typically eschew Big Reds.
