2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillstone Vineyard

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillstone Vineyard
Napa Valley

The Hillstone Cabernet is created from a prime hillside vineyard at the home of George and Carol Biel. Planted in 1993, the vines are rooted in cobbly, light loam soils, terraced on a steep, west-facing slope in Rutherford. The 2012 vintage is an elixir of super-saturated fruit with heady aromas of wild blackberry, chocolate fudge, molasses, spruce and vanilla. Towering and thick-trunked the wine is also strikingly plush and fleshy with espresso mocha tannins. 250 cases produced.
