92 Points - Wine Spectator
"This is a rock-solid offering, featuring dark currant and mulled raspberry fruit, laced with light savory and tobacco notes. Ends with a focused mix of fruit and cedar on the pleasantly grippy finish. Drink now through 2029. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 7,124 cases made." -JM, 8/31/19

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored and features a wonderfully vibrant nose of red and black cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants with touches of rose petals, spice box and tilled soil. The medium to full-bodied palate offers crunchy black fruit with a firm structure of grainy tannins and just enough freshness on the savory finish." -LPB, 10/29/18

91 Points - Vinous
"Chimney Rock's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is beautiful, precise and impeccably balanced. Floral top note and bright red cherry/plum fruit are very nicely delineated. Medium in body and gracious, the 2016 is super expressive today. The 25% Merlot adds mid-palate softness and helps in giving the wine a good bit of early appeal. What a pretty wine it is." -AG, Dec/2018

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Softened with the addition of 25% Merlot, this wine offers a combination of power with grace. Touches of tar, petrol and rocky mineral start this off on the nose. It's shows robust and tightly grained tannins on the palate, with a bold shock of blue fruit and cinnamon." -VB, 3/1/19
