2016 Circa ’79 Cabernet Sauvignon
Happy fortieth year of farming grapes in Napa Valley to Doug Hill! This blend gave Hill Family Estate a chance to honor Doug’s spirit of lifelong learning and the priority he puts on enjoying his family. Doug is twenty years old in this picture. It expresses the joy of a young man starting out and forming the vision that will carry him through life. Everyone who works with Doug encounters the focus and determination, the resilience and sense of humor he carries to all his projects and relationships. The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon offers lovely aromas of boysenberries, hazelnuts, caramel and wild sage. The palate is ripe and rich with balanced acidity and flavors that echo the aromas – blackberry and black licorice with a hint of brambly sage.
