93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Chimney Rock's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Tomahawk Vineyard is dark, round and sumptuous. Red cherry, plum, menthol, tobacco and sweet spices all flesh out in a radiant, pliant Cabernet Sauvignon that should offer a wide window of highly pleasurable drinking. This is a fabulous example of the pure appeal of 2012. Drink: 2017-2032. (Dec 2014)"
92 points Wine Spectator: "[$136 list] Shows excellent structure, focus, richness and texture, with a deep and potent core of currant and dark berry flavors. The texture is framed by firm yet generous tannins, and the finish is long and engaging. Drink now through 2029. 961 cases made. (10/31/15)"
92 points/'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$136 list] From an estate-grown, valley-floor vineyard on the southern edges of the winery property, this wine is complex and nuanced in berry pie and a satchel of dried herb. Sizable tannins—which show promise to be tamed with time—form the integrated structure, supporting a lengthy, mocha-chocolate finish. Cellar through 2020. Alcohol 14.5%. (Dec 2015)"
