Heart of the Hill Vineyard, Red Mountain AVA
100% Cabernet Sauvignon


Immediately dark and brooding on the nose, with aromas of blackberry, black cherry, red and black currants, violets, baking spices, vanilla, and a gravelly undertone. A beautifully dense ruby color in the glass, the palate closely mirrors the nose with the dark fruits playing the leading role and the subtle floral and mineral notes accenting the well-integrated vanilla and spices from 20 months aging in new French Oak. Very well structured with all of the attributes to age gracefully, this is a classic example of Clone 2 Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the premier vineyards on Red Mountain.


2020 Heart of the Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, 96 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
"Pure, fresh and precise, the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Heart of the Hill is instantly impressive with layers of dark red and black fruit tones that sway with elegant spices. Full-bodied, the wine is open, fresh, pure and complex, with a balanced structure and gripping tannins that melt away to reveal delicious and succulent acidity. The wine cascades to an impeccable and food-friendly finish that will continue to please for over a decade and a half. The wine rested for 20 months in new French oak. Only 1440 bottles were produced." - Anthony Mueller
