Overview

The Chimney Rock Estate is blessed with a diversity of soil and topography that breeds complexity in our wines. To the east, our steep hills and shallow soils bring us density and power. On the north end, our proximity to the Palisades gifts us with ripeness and purity of fruit. To the south, our proximity to the bay brings us breezes that add the nuance of cooler climate–adding hints of dried herbs and mint. It is this diversity that has enabled us to represent the quintessence of Stags Leap District–the tension between grace and power, the balance of finesse and muscle. We are delighted to share our 35th vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon: Its beauty proclaims we are here to stay.
