2007 Origin 1.5L
Origin is our chance to create the best blend possible from the 2007 vintage. It allows us to use many of the small select lots we make from special sites farmed by Doug Hill and his family all over the Napa Appellation. Blending this wine is always a challenge, as expectations are high, and the lots themselves can have strong voices that do not always want to balance the way one would expect. Doug Hill has planted an interesting clone of Merlot at Beau Terre Vineyard called Rauseto, that has a strong personality, and adds structure and muscle to the blend. The final blend shimmers and forms complex layers that will grow and improve for years to come.
