Description

"The Hills - Block 6" is an older vineyard in the heart of the Rutherford AVA owned by the MacDonnell family (proprietors of Round Pond winery). The family has long been one of the larger and more respected grape growers in Rutherford, and kindly made several tons available of Block 6 – a decades old block planted in deep, well drained soils with a crazy five-foot high canopy system. The wine is true to the AVA with the intense dark fruit flavors, minerality, "dusty" tannins and wonderful balance. This is graceful wine that can be enjoyed now but will certainly reward cellaring.

Wine Critic Reviews
"Another spicy, savory, complex Rutherford Cabernet, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon The Hills Block 6 gives up lots of darker currant fruits supported by notes of sappy herbs, cigar wrapper, Asian spices, and spicy oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and structured, it's another impressive, balanced, age-worthy wine." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "Brambleberries, blackberries and wild herbs on the nose. Full-bodied with bright acidity and firm tannins. Pleasant plum and red-cherry flavors cut through on the palate. Best after 2023." ~ James Suckling
