The 2018 vintage of Harrison Hill offers a slightly more hedonistic wine from these cherished older vines, with captivating fruit aromas, led by currant, incorporated into classically restrained and earthy bouquet of tobacco and violets. Lively on the palate, decadent blackberry and mint flavors adorn a classic tannin structure, with an incredibly lengthy finish. Youthful and slow to develop, oak is just beginning to fully integrate; yet balance throughout assures longevity in the bottle.

Always one of the lighter colored wines in the lineup, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Harrison Hill has a classic bouquet or red currants, green tobacco, spring flowers, and flowery incense. This carries to a medium-bodied, elegant, balanced barrel sample that has no hard edges, ripe tannins, and fabulous length on the finish. I always love this wine, and the 2018 is certainly another beautiful effort” – Jeb Dunnuck
Wine & Spirits
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
2018 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.
