03 Chimney Rock Cabernet Reserve ($85) ☺☺☺☺ 

When I first tasted this wine back in 07 it was obvious it was going to be a sleeper. it was a beautiful balance of tannins, acid and fruit. A pure 100% Cabernet which has matured into a fine wine. On the nose it is Cassis and Blackberries with that wonderful chocolate underneath. When you taste this wine it is like velvet on the tongue and has a long long finish. I estimate that this wine still has some years left in it and will reward further patience. For those of you dying to try it out, all I can say is that it is a treat !
