Hillside Select is sourced from a collection of 14 small vineyard blocks planted within an eons-old amphitheater-like structure of rock and volcanic soil that surrounds the winery. Thanks to scant soil nutrients and moisture, yields at harvest are meager and the berries are small, about the size of blueberries. This Stags Leap District site’s combination of rugged, arid soil and climate results in lush Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with dark color and intense, classic flavor.
Grape: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Stags Leap District - Napa Valley
Nose: Aromas of dark fruit and floral notes are completed by core-flavors of blackberry, cassis, and black cherry along with delicate herbs, graphite, and smoke.
Palate: The wine is smooth and balanced as it moves through the mouth. The texture is seamless and light on its feet with classic Stags Leap District tannins.
Finish: Textured, rich and subtle with an engine ready to last.
