Hill Family Estate Barrel Blend 2015


SKU 47360


2015 was a meager crop year, with roller coaster weather and an early harvest. The small crops of Malbec and Merlot had great berry fruit and dense color. The Syrah and Petit Sirah were great assets for density, color, and texture, and in combination with the big fruity Zinfandel from Wooden Valley, and a little Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot for dignity and some Pinot Noir for grace and a more refined nature, we expect this wine to grow for years to come.

Wine AdvocateThe medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Proprietary Red Barrel Blend is composed of 34% Merlot, 30% Zinfandel, 18% Malbec, 5% Petit Sirah, 5% Pinot Noir, 4% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon with a nose of vague plums and black cherries with touches of underbrush and pepper. Medium to full-bodied and soft and innocuous in the mouth, there's a bit of savory chew on the finish.
