2018 Windy Flats Cabernet Sauvignon
Hill Family Estate purchased the Windy Flats Vineyard in 2012 after leasing the site for almost a decade. The 142-acre parcel is planted with 20 acres of vineyard and is a unique vineyard site, resting high above the fog line on the steep slopes of Wooden Valley east of Napa. Rocky soils and exposure to frequent wind (hence the name) make this a challenging site for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, yet the reward is high. For the last number of years, the Cabernet Sauvignon from Windy Flats Vineyard has been used as the backbone of our Double Barrel and Red Door wines. 2018 was such an outstanding vintage that it seemed like the perfect year to introduce this Cabernet Sauvignon as a stand-alone wine. The wine has incredible depth and complexity that will continue to develop over time.
