A Big, Bold Cab for Fall Date Night

Try a Chimney Rock Cab for your next date night in

Need a date night wine? Try a big, bold Chimney Rock Cabernet from the famous Stags Leap district. It’s the B.B. King of red wine: smooth, yet a little edgy.

Sounds, divine, right?

Sometimes, a wine night in is better than a date night out to a nice restaurant. Splurge on the wine, and you’ll still spend less money than you would going out to eat.

Here’s a little bit more about this winery…

About Chimney Rock

Founded in 1980, the first winery in South Africa, Groot Constantia, inspired the dutch-style architecture of this gorgeous Napa winery. Tasting on the patio overlooking the gardens is the picturesque setting to taste high-end Stags Leap Cabs. The frieze of Ganymede, cupbearer to the Gods, overlooks the fountains and garden.

Why is the Stags Leap District famous?

The Stags Leap District in Napa Valley is famous for a few reasons. The famous 1976 Judgement of Paris put Napa Valley on the world wine map when the 1973 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon won the blind tasting. Located along the Silverado Trail, the Stags Leap rock formation overlooks vineyards. Hunters chased a legendary stag, who leaped off the giant rock to his freedom. You can see the rock from the porch at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. Another one of our favorite wines is Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Artemis.

You really need to open a Chimney Rock Cabernet Sauvignon with food. Pair it with a grilled steak (an obvious choice) or a gourmet burger. A dish with rich, rustic flavors will pair well with this bold Cab. Here are some recipe ideas:
