Handcrafted, award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon fron the heart of Stags Leap District. Since the Terlato family assumed sole ownership of Chimney Rock in 2004, they have remained steadfast in their vision for this great estate. In the pursuit to produce unique wines of exceptional and world-class quality, they have developed and managed the Chimney Rock Winery estate vineyards into a sustainable, standard bearer of Cabernet Sauvignon.

"The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District is based on 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, and minuscule percentages of Petit Verdot and Malbec that's all from estate fruit in the Stags Leap District. It offers a pure, medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant style as well as tons of minerality in its red and black fruits, ripe, building tannins, nicely integrated acidity, and just a kiss of background oak."
Jeb Dunnuck - 95 points

"Super lush and polished in feel, with creamy-textured acai, mulberry and cassis notes gliding through slowly. Laced with alluring hints of violet, iris and anise, this offers a melted licorice note on the finish, but the fruit wins out easily. Drink now through 2037."
James Molesworth - Wine Spectator - 94 points

"Attractive aromas of blackcurrants, walnuts, spiced cedar and black olives. Full and creamy yet polished and sleek with bright fruit and fine, slightly chewy tannins. Chalky finish. "

"Chimney Rock's 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District is pretty textbook stuff, delivering black cherries and cassis dusted in dried earth and mixed spices. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky and fine, not overpowering but rather elegant, with a long, lingering finish."
