Winston Hill

2014 Winston Hill Vineyard, Rutherford

$150

Winston Hill exudes aromas and flavors of blackberry, black cherry, cinnamon, clove, chocolate, vanilla bean, bacon fat and graphite. The wine vibrates with life with an energy that builds throughout the palate, refusing to die on the finish. It is impeccably structured and balanced.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Winston Hill is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. This vineyard can actually be seen adjacent to the Silverado Trail. 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. This stunner is totally in harmony and can be drunk now or cellared for another 20-25 years.
