Hill Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
I grabbed this while on a conference trip to N.C. Shop owner recommended it as being hard to get a hold of. This wine has a sl. purple, black cherry hue with a distant bouquet of sweet dark fruit with pleasant berry jam as the foundation with a lovely cinnamon note.
Palate--Absolutely silky tannins with subdued vegetal flavors with big berry fruits, leather, tar and more fruit.
I paid $40 for it and was it okay for the price but not an eye poppin, palate surprising creation.
Raise a glass.
