Winemaker Tasting Notes: The Hillside is the darkest and richest of the wines, with enough structure to handle its intensity. Superripe plum, bittersweet chocolate, tobacco and licorice flesh out as the wine ages.
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Missiaen's Hillside Vineyard is the darkest and richest of these wines, but it also has enough structural breadth to handle all of that intensity. Superripe plum, bittersweet chocolate, tobacco and licorice all flesh out over time. This is an especially rich, seamless style, yet all the elements are in the right place."- Vinous.
