2018 Seven Hills Vineyard

Seven Hills Vineyard is synonymous with expressive red fruit and a mineral backbone, and this vintage is no exception. Scents of cherry notes and hints of cassis lead the way, followed closely by Moroccan spices, hints of dusty cedar, and the intrigue of orange oil. The first sip shows bright acidity with polished tannins and a lush mid-palate. The long, dense finish hints at the 2018 vintage being a powerhouse for years to come.

THE 2018 VINTAGE

The 2018 harvest kicked off with a nice even spring. July brought in hotter temperatures, as well as some smoke from surrounding fires. But by the second week of August, the weather cooled off considerably to usher in one of the most ideal ripening seasons in recent history. September brought beautiful, mild weather, offering the fruit several extra weeks to hang during long, sun-filled fall days. Harvest wrapped up on October 15th producing wines that are balanced with great fruit expression. A harvest to remember, indeed!
