The Hill Family 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, all sourced from premium vineyard locations in the Atlas Peak, Oak Knoll, and Yountville appellations. In this blend, the Cabernet offers beautiful flavors and ripe tannins, while the Petit Verdot lends a dense, chewy, quality and the Merlot contributes to the velvety smooth, rich layers of flavor.
After many blending sessions, this wonderfully balanced, elegant wine was achieved. Garnet black in color, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon opens nicely with soft oak and hints of blackberry, cedar and black licorice. The palate is packed with flavor, building its core around deep black cherry and blueberry fruit notes with hints of berry compote, smoked nuts, and oak.
