92 points Vinous. The 2013 Red Blend Elevage, Chimney Rock's Merlot-based blend, is pretty restrained for the year. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, spice and new leather are all given an extra kick of brightness from the floral notes that are woven throughout. Drink this expressive, open-knit wine over the next handful of years. (AG) (10/2015)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Elevage reveals a blue-ish hue to its deep purple color, always a good sign. Displaying the vintage’s pure, ripe, concentrated fruit along with sweet tannins, it will offer an outstanding mouthful of wine over the next 12-15 years. (RP)


“A satiny Stags Leap Bordeaux blend; dark and concentrated with ripe, generous black plum and toasty vanilla oak. 53% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc.” ~ Anthony Dias Blue, The Tasting Panel Chimney Rock’s proprietarily-named red wine blend is Elevage. Crafted from grapes grown across our 37 distinctive vineyard blocks, this wine takes advantage of four different red varieties that capture the essence of our estate. While the first vintage was released in 1990, we remain deeply committed to, and passionately fond of, this blend comprised of Bordeaux varietals. Elevage, an evocative mélange of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, serves as an artistic portrait of the vintage at the Chimney Rock estate. Experience this blend that evokes finesse and complexity, depth and dimension, and truly highlights the singular nature of the Stags Leap District.
