HillCrest – a perfect marriage of Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes grown on the crest of the hillside. Big, mouth filling, but balanced fruitiness, acidity, and moderate alcohol, this deep red wine expresses the minerals in the soil, the rain, wind, and sunshine. This is your wine for hearty meals, grilled steaks, roast leg of lamb, sausages, ribs, venison, and lasagna. Pair it with aged gouda, sharp cheddar, blues, ouray, and San Andreas. Not for wimps or sugar junkies. Get a nice blaze going in the fireplace then sit down with a glass of this wine and you will immediately become a philosopher.
