Chimney Rock Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 1.5L
|Appellation||Stags Leap District|
Wine EnthusiastThis youthfully full-bodied, grippy wine has juicy cassis and a leathery texture at its core, with dried herb and cedar playing at its edges, a fine representation of a tannic vintage that offers structure in spades. Densely concentrated, it has ages to go in the bottle; drink now through 2023.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Stags Leap shows an elegant style from this southern AVA in Napa Valley. Black and red currants, licorice and earth are all present in this medium-bodied, Margaux-like wine. It's not a blockbuster by any means, but it's stylish, pure and well-balanced. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
