Vine Hill Ranch

vine-hill-ranch.jpgRising from the valley floor into the foothills of the Mayacamas Ranges, Vine Hill Ranch has been growing grapes since 1959.  Bordered by Harlan Estate to the west and Dominus Estate to the east, the 70 acres of vineyards supply top-quality fruit to many of the best Napa Valley producers.  One plot (Block One) is the source for Bond Estate's 'Vecina', while wineries such as Cakebread Cellars, Etude, Mondavi and Beaulieu Vineyards have used Vine Hill Ranch's fruit in their top cuvees for years.

Since 2008 the Phillips family have retained a small amount of fruit from each of their seven Cabernet blocks, and engaged winemaker superstar Francoise Peschon to produce a quintessential expression of Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon.  The few hundred cases produced each year are considered by many to be the most exciting new release in the heady world of top-end Napa Valley Cabernet.  But with this pedigree, the only surprise is that it's not priced higher than it is, representing great value for Napa Cab.
