Chimney Rock Arete Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2014
Enjoy the latest fully realized edition of our beloved Arete, a best-of selection from our finest vineyards.
The Greek word Arete, (pronounced ah-reh-‘tay), has no true translation to English, but the closest understanding we have of the word, is the idea of excellence in all things. The traditional assemblage of Arete is a blend from multiple blocks on the Estate dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a wine of power, grace and character that unapologetically says “I am Cabernet.” Join us in celebrating this Olympian of excellence from the Chimney Rock Estate.
