Cabernet Sauvignon Old Hill Ranch Sonoma Valley
Established in 1852 near the town of Glen Ellen, Old Hill Ranch is one of California’s oldest vineyards. The six-acre block of Cabernet Sauvignon- a relative newcomer to the vineyard- was planted on Old Hill in 1982. This Cabernet block was planted by their neighbor Bruce Cohn, who leased the vineyard until 2004. The vines are planted in the old California style of wide spacing on a terraced hillside in what is often referred to as the “banana belt” of Sonoma Valley.
Aged in 40% new French oak for 20 months.
Tasting Notes: The 2014 Cab has aromas of eucalyptus, currants and plums in a background of lavender spice.
