2017 Vine Hill Ranch 'VHR' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: The 2017 VHR Cabernet Sauvignon offers beautiful floral aromas of violet and lavender, with bright damson fruit, ripe blackberry, dark chocolate with a hint of cedar and tobacco. Gorgeous black cherry, currant and cocoa powder notes are framed by structured, opulent, yet elegant expressions of the Cabernet Sauvignon variety nascent to the individual vineyard blocks contributing to the vintage. The wine’s finish is lengthy and powerful with a complexity and balance that have become signatures of the vineyard.
Vinous - "VHR's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is racy, silky and exceptionally polished. Sweet floral, spice and earthy notes add character. In 2017, the Vine Hill Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is especially gracious, with less weight and overall richness than has been the norm in the past. In 2017, the team led by winemaker Françoise Peschon and vineyard manager Mike Wolf crafted an impeccable, beautifully balanced wine, but, at the same time, there is no getting around the fact that 2017 was a very challenging year, especially for valley floor sites. All things considered, this is a strong showing."
