About Chimney Rock 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley, Magnum 1.5L


Magnum 1.5L
Stags Leap District is one of the first sub-appellations to be recognized in Napa Valley. This unique area on the eastern edge of the valley had been turning out consistently fine Cabernet for decades. Chimney Rock's winemaker, Doug Fletcher, maximizes the potential of this exceptional appellation with a rigorous approach to vineyard management including the "Fletcher Lyre" trellising system, pioneered at Chimney Rock. The system allows grapes to ripen longer which results in small, intensely flavored berries with deeper skin pigments and richer, riper flavors. This wine form the outstanding 2015 vintage is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 93 points saying "This is a robust mineral-laden wine—a true representation of the substantial appellation, so good at offering power and complexity. Quiet layers of toasted coconut and oak are complemented by baked cherry and blackberry along with an unshakable hint of bay leaf. This will do well with more time, so enjoy best 2025–2030."

James Suckling scored this 92 points saying "A silky red with plum, blackcurrant and subtle chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body and a dense center palate, yet this remains refined and beautiful. Much better than the 2013. Drink in 2020."
