2014 Chimney Rock Tomahawk Vineyard Cabernet
For you Insider’s, here is a super great deal on an amazing Cabernet.
“Take an imaginary stroll with us to the land of Tomahawk. Picture a perfect summer day and feel the warmth of the sun as we walk south towards this magnificent vineyard. As we pass the intersection of two blocks just north of our destination we stop to feel a sudden change—a noticeable breeze envelops and cools us. This is where the terroir of Tomahawk begins. We look back north and note that the warmer Palisades are now in the far distance.
“We walk up to the first row of vines and their broad cordons appear powerful and serene. Underfoot, the volcanic soils stress the roots to produce something that no other block can yield. To stand here is to look into the soul of Tomahawk. 2015 confirms everything we have always known about this vineyard; it has a powerful story to tell. Join us and listen, closely.
“Tomahawk Vineyard is the pinnacle of the Chimney Rock estate. Comprised of a small group of vines which were planted in 2002, Tomahawk consistently produces intense, massively complex fruit. The ensuing wines are truly world-class, compelling, powerful and elegant with a remarkably lengthy finish.”
“The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Tomahawk Vineyard offers a darker fruited, meaty, masculine and mineral-driven style. Coming from a site in Stags Leap, and aged in 80% new French oak, it’s medium to full-bodied and nicely textured on the palate, with solid balance, good ripeness, lots of tannins, and a good finish. Forget bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades.” – Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Tomahawk Vineyard comes from the southern end of their property and consistently produces one of the more powerful and concentrated wines, even though it never loses its Stags Leap personality. The 2014 exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, a much more muscular style than its predecessors, with loads of tannin, concentrated fruit, plenty of minerality and depth. This is a proposition for patient collectors who are willing to wait 3-4 years and drink it over the following 25. Nevertheless, it is impressive – but patience is a virtue.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
