— Robert M. Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate
“…the 2000 Harrison Hill reveals complex panoply of spices, herbs, and ripe black fruits in its aromas as well as flavors. This refined, satin-textured beauty has terrific mouth-feel, wondrous balance, and a long, seamless finish.”
Ravioli with Pancetta — Harrison Hill is a wine that will age beautifully and can be enjoyed with a plethora of selections over time. Consider pairing with grilled or roasted lamb, roasted beef or venison. Earthy vegetables such as Brussel sprouts, parsnips, squash, mushrooms and dark greens pair particularly well. For older vintages, pairings with game birds such as duck and pheasant or lighter stews are recommended.
Behind the Wine
2002 Harrison Hill
A Bordeaux-style blend from a small, historic vineyard on Snipes Mountain, this wine is labelled after the vineyard’s namesake – Harrison Hill. Over the past five decades, the state’s second oldest Cabernet vines have matured gracefully while producing progressively limited yields. This slow, elegant maturation is a compelling expression of what it means to be a terroir-driven wine.
Harrison Hill, a five-acre site in the Snipes Mountain AVA, still boasts a 1962 Cabernet Sauvignon planting by William Bridgman, a pioneer of planting European wine grapes in Washington State. These vines are the second oldest in the state, and the oldest used in commercial wine production.
