Wine Spectator 90 points - This shows the focus and structure of an old-school Napa red, built for the cellar. The appealing aromas of black cherry, tobacco and green olive lead to layered currant, vanilla and spice flavors that linger. The tannins are firm but fleshy. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2015 through 2021. 1,263 cases made.-TF  (Oct 15 2013)

Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2010 Proprietary Red Elevage is a blend of 56% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with notes of camphor, plums, cherries and black currants. Medium-bodied, juicy and nicely concentrated with good acidity, sweet tannin, a sexy, lush style, and nothing out of place, it can be enjoyed over the next decade.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 87 points - This is the winery’s Bordeaux-style blend, based on Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s very rich in blackberry and chocolate flavors, with plenty of toasty oak. Yet it has a sharpness that detracts, and is unlikely to age out. Drink now. (Sep 2013)

Wine maker notes
Chimney Rock’s proprietarily-named red wine blend is Elevage. Crafted from grapes grown across our 37 distinctive vineyard blocks, this wine takes advantage of four different red varieties that capture the essence of our estate. While the first vintage was released in 1990, we remain deeply committed to, and passionately fond of, this blend comprised of Bordeaux varietals. Elevage, an evocative melange of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, serves as an artistic portrait of the vintage at the Chimney Rock estate. Experience this blend that evokes finesse and complexity, depth and dimension, and truly highlights the singular nature of the Stags Leap District.
