Hill Family 2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Hill Family Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is carefully blended to give power and balance. We particularly appreciate the opportunity to use high elevations with their intense tannins and color, then blend and civilize them with vineyards from the valley floor and cooler areas. Windy Flats is on the western foothills in Wooden Valley, and Beau Terroir is in the Napa Carneros foothills. Beau Terre, Flat Rock, and Apallas are on the valley floor. The Malbec, Merlot, and Petit Verdot elevate the nose and display the fruit and oak spice. Wines from 2016 benefitted from a decent growing season with gentle roller coaster temperatures, slightly less than average winter rains, and a few hot spells. Late rains in June made viticulturists vigilant, and cool temperatures in mid-September gave winemakers a bit of a break, but the season was early, and most Cabernet came in between September 20 and October 14.

Aromas of blackberry, mocha, and black licorice build into rich oak spice, vanilla and caramel. The palate is ripe and inviting with gentle tannins surrounded by blackberry cobbler and deep black cherry notes. The finish is full and lush; a real mouthful of classic Cabernet with a sweet disposition.
