Chimney Rock Elevage 2018

Elevage, a proprietary blend, explores the idea that multiple personalities can indeed coexist harmoniously in the world of wine. Take the austerity of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, blend it with the roundness of Merlot, add the aromatic highlights of Petit Verdot, the savory notes of Cabernet Franc and voila, a complex symphony is written. 

94 pts - Wine Enthusiast

This wine is super expressive with aromas of blackberry, cocoa powder with hints of mint, clove and espresso. Ripe and intense with flavors of blackberry, mocha and a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied with super silky tannins, a round and viscous mid-palate ends with a nice long finish with some bright acidity in the end. 

65% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot. Aged 18 months in all new French barrels.
