2015 Red Door
Red Door is a symbol of welcome, or a center of positive energy, abundance, and opportunity. Red Door from Hill Family Estate is a wine blended to take advantage of our best small lots that work together in the most rich and flavorful way, regardless of variety or appellation. In 2015, Cabernet Sauvignon was once again rich and elegant, with Windy Flats vineyard really pulling in the intense flavors and Beau Terre providing the color and structure. Baker had a very small crop that shriveled a bit, so we did not get to use as much of it. We had small lots of Petit Verdot and Malbec that worked together building depth and they had wonderful individuality that would be lost in a big blend, so the Red Door can give them a place to show off. From these outstanding lots we created a small quantity of an amazing wine. It is still evolving, but the fruit and 100% new oak work to build the Red Door into one of our best wines ever.
