$65.00

Doug and Darci Hill acquired one acre north of Yountville in 1981 and began growing fruit for premium Napa Valley wineries and vegetables for local restaurants, including Thomas Keller’s French Laundry. In 2001, they released their first wines, a Merlot and a red blend. Today, they own 120 acres of 100% family-owned, family-farmed, and family-operated land utilizing sustainable, environmentally friendly farming practices.

Winemaker Alison Doran has been with the team since the inaugural vintage. She’s honed her skills under the guidance of the legendary Winemaker André Tchelistcheff, completed a degree in Winemaking from UC Davis, and spent time in the noble Alsace region in France.

The 2021 Hill Family Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon combines High-Elevation Mountain Fruit from the Baker Vineyard on Atlas Peak at 1200 feet above the Valley, and carefully blended with Napa Valley Fruit to showcase Napa’s signature terroir and bold character. At $65, this powerful and elegant expression of Napa Valley Boutique Cabernet is a joy to behold… and it compares to the Upper Echelon at least twice the price.

Description

2021 HILL FAMILY ESTATE NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Tasting Notes from Master Sommelier, “The Hill Family Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 begins with a nose of black currants, crushed blueberries, cardamom, cocoa powder, menthol, and lavender. It continues on the palate with intense blackberries, ripe black plums, espresso grounds, and sweet vanilla wrapped in firm, gripping tannins. The concentrated fruit balances the tannin grip just enough to make this wine drinkable now but will reward you by cellaring for a decade or more.” KEVIN VOGT 94+ POINTS

Tasting Notes from Edward, “The 2021 Vintage is showing beautifully, and this Hill Family Estate Napa Valley Cab displays bursting aromas when you first open it – ripe berries, cassis, and mocha as you swirl… Rich fruit and ripe tannins define the style of this wine. This is a sensational expression of power from the Mountains and balance from the Valley. The front palate is inviting with blackberry cobbler and deep black cherry flavors. The mid-palate is everything we all Love about Classic Cabernet Sauvignon showcasing blackberry, blueberry, dark cherries and dark chocolates with hints of mocha, caramel, and vanilla lingering in a long finish… enjoy now with an 4-6 hour decant, and age this Boutique Wine gracefully in your cellar for upwards of 8-10 years. If you can wait that long! I’m drinking this one over the Holidays because it compares to wines 2x-3x the price! It’s so Big and so good, and it’s only going to get better- hence the Plus Signs, and Highly Recommended. Cheers!! ” CALIHIWINES 97+ POINTS
