Winston Hill Vineyard, Rutherford, Napa Valley
Winston Hill is located in the eastern side of the Napa Valley’s Rutherford appellation along the Vaca Mountain range; The hand-terraced vine rows have southwestern exposure and consist of well-drained volcanic and sandstone soils that rise nearly 500feet from the valley floor.
20 months in 75% new French oak barrels and 25% once-filled French oak barrels
The 2011 Winston Hill Blend has a midnight purple core with carmine hues on the rim. The attack is full of intense black fruit aromas and savory notes of roasted meats, rosemary and black pepper. Sweet new leather and roasted espresso are revealed as the wine opens. On the palate caramel and vanilla combine with the firm tannins and juicy black fruit giving a long lasting finish.
