Winston Hill

2014 Rutherford

$150

Deep purple in color, this is a profoundly beautiful wine, powerful yet focused, in addition to lively and fresh. It perfectly captures the beauty of our Rutherford hillside vineyard with textural elegance, fine tannin, and lengthy weight. Integrated oak supports layers of blackberry, espresso, vanilla, and cola, along with underlying acidity.

"A glorious example of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine has a dense purple color, seamless integration of acidity, alcohol and tannin, remarkable levels of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, judiciously integrated oak, and a voluptuous texture and long finish of close to 50 seconds."
