Current Releases


2015 Rose of Pinot Noir

Bottled under screw cap, aromas of watermelon, Asian pear, and light carnation come out fairly strongly. The dry and refreshing palate has watermelon and wild cherry flavors, with a bit of strawberry guava. The palate expands in the mouth with a balanced easy texture and nice body.

2015 Albarino

Albarino itself is an uncommon variety in California, but it is well known in Spain where it is grown in Galicia. Its zippy, acidity and light floral notes make it a natural companion to tapas and fresh seafood.

2015 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Complex nose of white peach, tropical mango fruit, and some light jasmine notes makes this Sauvignon Blanc from the Windy Flats Vineyard recognizable right away. Most of the grapes came from this vineyard, and its crisp dry entry and long persistent finish show light musque and ripe pineapple flavors. Sauvignon Blanc can make many different styles of wine, but we love the sense of place this wine evokes year after year.

2014 Tiara Sauvignon Blanc

The wine has a lovely flowery nose with ripe tropical fruits like mango and pineapple, topped by a light gardenia and vanilla note with some tangerine spice. The palate has generous proportions – great flavors of honeydew melon and marzipan mix with vanilla bean and coconut pineapple.

2014 Sauvignon Blanc Atlas Peak

Baker Vineyard up in Atlas Peak is a stony vineyard pried out of the volcanic outcrops and surrounding chaparral, with low yields and high intensity. Though this is Cabernet country, Doug decided to put in Sauvignon Blanc to see if we could push the limits on what Sauvignon Blanc could be. Alsace, where we grow our Semillon, is an elegant small vineyard in Oakville.

2014 Reserve Chardonnay

The nose offers rich aromas of vanilla and butterscotch blended with preserved lemon and ripe pear. The palate is filled with butterscotch and vanilla, but pineapple and a little coconut make for an almost aggressively rich exotic wine with big body and texture.

2014 Pinot Noir Saltonstall

Aromas of fresh strawberry and black raspberry compote, blended with cocoa and vanilla, gently arise from the glass. The dense, full entry is highlighted with blackberries and blueberries, is overlaid with accents of cocoa nibs, and is sustained by a long finish.

2014 Syrah Clarke Vineyard

The Clarke Vineyard in American Canyon has a cool breezy climate that brings out the depth and finesse of the Syrah grape. Clone 877 is used for body and raspberry chocolate fruit, and a little Clone 383 for extra color and smoky complexity. A small amount of Viognier was co-fermented with the Syrah to add its exotic appeal.

2014 Beau Terre Vineyard Merlot

The wine has a deep, generous jammy blackberry nose with a hint of ripe strawberry and sweet mocha. Lively and balanced on the palate, young and curvy, with little pockets of tannin going off down the long finish. Acidity works to lift the blackberry and boysenberry fruit over the toasty mocha oak centered in the middle of the wine.

2014 Like a Hawk

For a few years now, Hill Family has been creating a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah known for its punch and vigor. The Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon lots are always a treat to blend, and eventually we find the place where this “Team of Rivals” fits together seamlessly, better than each could be separately. In 2014, the “Like a Hawk” is mostly made from Baker Vineyard in Atlas Peak, and Windy Flats in Wooden Valley, with some Oak Knoll appellation. “Like a Hawk” is a big elegant intense wine, with huge color and density.

2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is carefully blended to give the wine both power and balance. We particularly appreciate the opportunity to use high elevations (Baker in Atlas Peak is at 1,500 ft) with their intense tannins and color, then blend and civilize them with vineyards from the valley floor and cooler areas. The Malbec, Merlot, and Petit Verdot elevate the nose and display the fruit and oak spice.
