2005 Chimney Rock "Elevage" Stags Leap District Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1043647 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Less jammy and forward than the '04 Elevage, but more closed and tannic than the winery's regular 2005 Cabernet, this Bordeaux blend really needs time to show its stuff. It has obviously deep and impressive currant and blackberry flavors, but the tannins are significant. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (12/2008)

Outer quote mark Their blend, the 2005 Proprietary Red Elevage, which is obviously composed of Bordeaux varietals such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot (I don’t think any Cabernet Franc is in it), has a slightly denser ruby/purple color. The aromatics of blue, red and black fruits, forest floor and spring flowers, excellent richness, purity and texture in this medium to full-bodied wine are impressive. Soft tannins and silkiness typify Stags Leap, but there is a complexity and richness as well. Kudos to the Terlato family who own this winery and have certainly improved the quality dramatically. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This has the rich, black-soil character of fine Stags Leap District cabernet, the lovely texture firmed up by mineral tannins. Dark black cherry flavors last with those tannins. This should be at its best six to eight years from the vintage. Inner quote mark (12/2008)
