Traditional approaches in the cellar bring out the special character of Vine Hill fruit. Grapes are cold soaked prior to fermentation, then remain with their skins even after fermentation for full extraction of color, flavors, and soft tannins. Aging in predominantly new French oak barrels balances and integrates this intense, 100% cabernet sauvignon wine.
"Vine Hill Ranch spreads out along the western foothills of the Mayacamas mountain range in the Oakville region of Napa Valley. Because vines here take root in the deep, loamy benchland soils, we're able to craft powerful Vine Hill cabernet sauvignon wines that exhibit an opulent palate and firm tannin structure over a dense, elegant finish."
