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
Nose: Deep, ripe, cassis and blackberry, intriguing black licorice and briary garrigue aromas; almost a molasses intensity of depth. Palate: Wow! Lovely, ripe, full bodied, and balanced. Fruit forward and very elegant, supported by strong oak tannins in the middle. But the overall impression is of the rich black cherry and black berry with an evolving tapered finish.
Winemaker Notes
Skill and experience were paramount to pull the most out of our vineyards in 2005. Late rains, fog and cool temperatures during the fall combined to make this very challenging vintage. Our Cabernet grapes finally ripened nicely, with final Brix in the high 25s and mid 26s, but it was a nail biter, with the mountain vineyards coming in on Halloween with rain just starting to fall. Color held well, and the lovely black fruit notes came out early and just needed to be preserved with gentle treatment and careful blending, backed up with judicious toasty oak.
