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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Big toasty French Oak nose, densely layered with boysenberry fruit and vanilla. The palate shows the lively character present in the Merlot’s of the Oak Knoll District in Napa. This 2007 has the balanced, richly textured structure that Merlot can develop in the best years. Boysenberry jam and vanilla cream mix and then give way gradually to cedar and sandalwood. Still young and buoyant, the 07 has a serious side that will keep it interesting for many years to come.
Vineyard Notes
The Beau Terre vineyard is a centerpiece for Doug Hill’s accumulated viticultural knowledge. From the row spacing to the trellising, the row direction and the clones selected, everything has been carefully thought-out to give Merlot its best expression. About half each of the Rausetto clone and half the 181 clone were selected for this Merlot. 2007 was an excellent growing year, and this wine takes splendid advantage of such an opportunity.
