CHIMNEY ROCK CABERNET SAUVIGNON - 2002
From Stag's Leap District, Napa Valley with 14.1% alcohol.
Transparent cherry-purple color with a big vanilla cream nose. Huge black currant and blackberry flavors with well-integrated oak. Hints of cocoa and mocha on the mid-palate. Cherry cola and prune on the finish. Very dry tannins will leave your mouth leathery.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
A wonderful wine. Very smooth and polished effort. Highly enjoyable and really drinking well right now. If you have this one in your cellar, it is time to pull the cork.
