This winery is located on the legendary Silverado Trail. We are pretty sure that the infamous villain, Black Bart, who roamed this trail in the 1880s robbing stagecoaches, would have enjoyed the fine wines produced by Chimney Rock, as he was also known as the “gentleman bandit.” This is Chimney Rock’s best Stags Leap Cabernet since the 2005, and continues a string of successful vintages. Dry and smooth and silky in the mouth, it’s pretty tannic, but very rich, offering waves of cherry, blackberry, blueberry, cocoa and sweet cedar flavors. Absolutely delicious, wonderfully elegant, and should age well for a decade. Score: 94 Source: Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
