Hilary Goldschmidt Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2011 750ml

Hilary Goldschmidt Cabernet Sauvignon  Oakville

Hilary Goldschmidt is made in an old world style: the grapes are picked a little earlier which results in lower alcohol and higher acid. Dark rubygarnet color, aromas of red plum and black cherry. Classically varietal characteristics, with flavors of blackberry and cassis on the palate. Broadly structured, finishes with long, silky tannins.

The 2011 vintage in Oakville was smaller than usual and produced very elegant wines. The relatively long growing season due to the cool and mild temperatures that lasted until the end of August produced a more restrained style, one that can be characterized by subtlety over power. The harvest was delayed by about 10 days, despite the frequent heat spikes in September. Overall this vintage has slightly lower sugars and higher acids than usual but still shows deep colors and flavors. Aromas of blackberry and black cherry. Reined-in middle palate with cherry, black currant, and blackberry flavors, all elegantly framed in smoky oak. Fine tannins. Nuances of spice and leather in the finish.

In 1990, Nick and his wife Yolyn settled down in Healdsburg, California, as Simi's Associate Winemaker. Nick was promoted to Chief Winemaker 1991 and became Vice President and Chief Winemaker in 1996. Nick spent a total of 13 years at Simi and was one of the driving forces that brought the Simi Reserve Cabernet program to notoriety. In May of 2003 Nick accepted the position of Executive Vice President and Winemaker at Allied Domecq Wines USA and was subsequently named Vice President and Executive Domestic Winemaker for Beam Estates wine portfolio.

The Atlas Peak Sangiovese vineyard was planted in 1989 and remains one of the first significant plantings in California. Well drained, the site maintains control ove the natural vigor of the vine and yields a well-balanced crop. It is comprised of three clones, each with a distinctive character to add to the overall complexity of the final blend. The appellation's exceptional combination of climate, exposure and soil stamps its signature on this classic varietal.
