Ripe, brooding, boysenberry, blackcurrant and black fig aromas, abetted by hints of loam, mineral and toasted oak, preface an immensely concentrated palate featuring deep, lush, dark cherry, boysenberry and cassis flavors. Tightly structured by youthfully firm, yet supple tannins and fresh, crisp acidity, the Vine Hill displays a density and power found in only the finest cabernet sauvignons. It culminates in an incredibly long, savory finish showcasing rich, earthy, black fruit flavors refreshed by cool mineral tones. A truly delicious wine, even in its youth, this intense, yet elegant cabernet sauvignon will flourish with another decade of bottle aging.
