Winemaker Notes - The 2008 Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon is dark-colored with red-purple hues. Aromas of black plum, violet and pomegranate are wrapped in a bouquet of hazelnut, coconut and Italian espresso. The large palate volume of this wine is surprisingly soft and round on the finish. A high fraction of Malbec brings brightness to this blend, whose complexity and structure is reminiscent of the finest of Bordeaux. This wine will age comfortably for 10 to 15 years.
