Hill Family Estate Barrel Blend 2014


SKU 2874


2014 was a great year especially for Malbec and Merlot that just burst with berry fruit and great color. The Syrah and Petit Sirah were great assets for density, color, and texture, and in combination with the Zinfandel from Wooden Valley, and a little Cabernet Sauvignon for dignity, it will be fun to see where this big bodacious wine will want to go.

Wine AdvocateA real sleeper of the vintage and an excellent value in Napa is the Hill family's 2014 Barrel Blend Proprietary Red, which is a kitchen sink mélange of Merlot, Zinfandel, Malbec, Syrah, Petit Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Sangiovese. Dense ruby/purple color, with loads of red and black fruits, some exotic spices, soft tannins, and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, this is a heck of a delicious wine for $25. Drink it over the next 6-8 years.
