Overview

Tomahawk Vineyard, named for the native Wappo Indian tribe that once hunted in the Napa Valley, is a small group of vines at the southern end of the property and represents the pinnacle of the Chimney Rock estate. Planted in 2002, this vineyard has, from the beginning, stunned everyone with its intense, massively complex fruit. Every year since, regardless of difficult weather or other viticultural challenges, the wines made from the Tomahawk Vineyard have been truly world-class -- compelling, multi-layered, and elegant with the lush mid-palate and lengthy finish that is the hallmark of Chimney Rock.

This wine is perfumed with aromas of intense blackberry and mint with hints of tar, tobacco and bay leaf.

Taste

On the palate this wine is powerful, full-bodied and well-structured. This muscular beauty could benefit from decanting if consumed in its youth.
