2018 Heart of the Hill 1.5L - Betz Family Winery
Deep ruby colored with a soft purple edge, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Heart of the Hill bursts from the glass with tones of black cherry, cassis, black raspberry, subtle spice tones, dried herbs and a lifted oak expression. Medium to full-bodied, the wine splashes down on the palate with the classic dusty minerality of Red Mountain, highlighted by red spice and a dusty black-fruited core across the mid-palate. Balanced and structured, the wine lingers with precision as soft spicy and dusty mineral tension continues to unfold with complexity, baking spices, dusty dark fruit and a soft herbaceous note. The long, lingering finish proves that this wine is a serious contender. The wine fermented in concrete and was aged in seasoned oak barrels for 36 to 48 months.
