All the essentials we look for in a classic onpoint Cabernet, blackberry, cassis, vanilla and black cherry. A rich mid palate and a lengthy finish. Chimney Rock does not disappoint in the 2012 vintage.
According to Robert Parker - "The well-made 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses good tannic grip, a Bordeaux-styled structural personality, a dark ruby/purple color, attractive blackcurrant fruit and spice box notes and medium body. Although somewhat reserved, it promises to unfold over the next decade or more. "
According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty, attractive wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the fruit retains its juiciness and vibrancy. There is good richness to the flavors, along with solid balance at this level. I imagine at many other wineries the 2012 might elicit more raves, but the competition within this range is intense." 14.5% ABV.
