Ratings

94 points: "Chewy 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."-Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast

91-93 points: "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." -Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
