2006 Beau Terre Vineyard Merlot

2006 Beau Terre Vineyard Merlot

In Stock

The Hill Family Estate wine library, is filled with wines dating back to our inaugural vintage in 2001. In celebration of Hill Family Estate's library collection, we’ve decided to open the vault. In early 2010 we began re-releasing some of our most prized vintages and vertical packs from the Napa Valley.
For library wine availability and pricing, please call (707) 944-9580 to speak with one of our ambassadors.

Tasting Notes
Nose: Raspberry and Boysenberry aromas with darker jammy fruit in the back. Palate: Milk chocolate and raspberry melt over the palate and the wine still seems young and vigorous, improving over several hours when open. Decanting this beauty is highly recommended!
Winemaker Notes
This 2006 Hill Family Merlot combines the best of the Hill Family’s Beau Terre Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District, with its plush black cherry and raspberry fruit, and the Beau Terre Atlas Peak Cabernet with its fine classic sage and brambly character. All vineyards are under the control of Hill Family Estate, offering the chance to make the tough but necessary decisions about viticulture that make for the best wines. 2006 was a cool year with hot spells, making a muscular Merlot that has a big structure. We actually added Cabernet to it for the softer fruit! After 18 months in barrel, the wine finally evolved enough to bottle.
