Winemaker Notes

Bright youthful purples and dark red.Exciting and full of exotic chocolate, minty, black cherry characters, with some white pepper overlaid with subtle oak character.Very sweet fruit with fine grained tannins persistent, which is a hallmark of this vineyard; excellent fleshy middle palate and a long supple and satisfying finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 88
Wine Enthusiast
Starts off with some Rhône-like aromas of smoke, cracked pepper, blueberries and a touch of meatiness, then delivers vibrant fruit and spice on the palate. With its medium body and tart finish, this could almost pass for Crozes-Hermitage. Like most C-H, enjoy it on the young side for its fresh, juicy fruit.

Evans Wine Company, , Australia
Evans Wine Company
Named for its founder Len Evans who emigrated to Australia in 1953 and has been a tireless owner, innovator, and promoter of Australian wines. Evans has had his hand in many Australian wineries including Rothbury Estate and Petaluma. Evans Wine Company was founded in 1980 and specializes in wines from the Hunter Valley for the Evans Family Wines label.

Hilltops is in the South-Western Slopes of the Great Dividing Range, situated around the rural towns of Young and Harden in Southern New South Wales. It is about four hours drive south of Sydney and about one and a half hours from Canberra the national capital. An historically important part of Australia, it has an established reputation as a producer of high quality stone fruit. The vineyards are mostly to the South East of Young, which is known as "The Cherry Capital of Australia" and there are about 1,000 acres under vine in the area. The region sits on a large granite rock, which over millions of years has weathered to produce deep topsoil, red coloured as it has mixed with ironstone sand blown in from the Red Centre of Australia.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
