98+ points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made from 100% Kiona Heart of the Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in new French oak, the inky colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Heart of the Hill is a spectacular wine that’s up with the crème de la crème of the vintage. Blackcurrants, blackberries, crushed rocks, graphite, and lead pencil notes all emerge from this full-bodied, rich, opulent, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon that's going to keep for 2-3 decades. Bravo."

Tasting through our 2015 Bordeaux style wines, the 2015 Heart of the Hill Cabernet Sauvignon stands out immediately with the deepest, brightest, purple magenta hue in the lineup. The aromas are equally brooding, offering intense cassis and black currant fruit wrapped in an array of spice notes from wood smoke, cocoa nib, espresso bean, anise to the savory notes of hoisin, beef broth, and tea leaf. The palate offers the richest, weightiest mouthful of Cabernet in our cellar. A greater degree of extract demands a longer rest in the cellar, but may ultimately live the longest of any of our wines.

Unlike Père de Famille Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon barrels from accross the Columbia Valley, our Heart of the Hill Cabernet Sauvignon bottling allows us to show off one grape variety from one unique site. We hope you enjoy the contrast as much as we do.

2015 marks our 7th harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Heart of the Hill Vineyard on Red Mountain. In these few years we’ve learned much about the impact of vineyard parcel, harvest date, and cellar handling. Over the past two vintages, we’ve assembled this wine exclusively from blocks of this vineyard.
