*NEW* 2019 Hillside
47% Petit Verdot, 27% Merlot, 26% Chardonnay
12.8 % ABV | 7 Months Neutral French Oak | American Appellation
The 2019 Hillside is a medium+ bodied red wine with moderate acidity and a medium to high level of tannin. The nose leads with an herbal quality (dried herbs) associated with Petit Verdot. There is also a high floral aspect to the wine with the smell of violet. Once one begins smelling past these initial aromas, there is some solid dark fruit in the background, mostly blueberry and plum.
The mouth starts with strong herbs, followed by the dark fruits seen in the nose of the wine. The medium level of acidity allows the wine to sit softly in the mouth, round and easy to drink.
