Tasting notes


<li> delicious black fruit, great complexity <li> can be drunk in 2-3 years <br /><br /> Blended with 14% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, Chimney Rock's 98 Cabernet is the winery's finest in its history. It is also the essence of the Stag's Leap region,


The essence of the Stag's Leap region, oozing lovely blackberry, cherry, and clove-spice character. Ageing in French oak (50% new) took this one to the next level of complexity, and the oak sticks out just a little now. It should all come together in 2-3
