2017 Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon
Double Barrel was invented for the sole purpose of highlighting the best wine from every vintage at Hill Family Estate. The wine is extremely rare, and limited to an annual production of only 50 cases. We unapologetically make this wine for collectors and do not expect it to reveal its intense charm and elegance for many years. The 2017 Double Barrel utilizes Cabernet Sauvignon from the Windy Flats and Baker Vineyards, which serves as the backbone of the blend. Merlot from the cooler region of Carneros adds elegance, while Malbec and Petit Verdot broaden the focus and add to the structure. 100% new French oak adds balance and support, and as the wine grows up with the oak, these beautiful barrels integrate into the wine’s structure until they will play only a supporting role. This highly allocated, limited-production wine is complex and refined, even in youth. It promises to be the star of your cellar.
Due to Double Barrel’s highly limited production, club discounts do not apply to this wine. Individual bottle purchases of Double Barrel do not include the custom wooden box; to purchase the 3-pack with a box, click here.
