  2002 Old Vine Zinfandel
Pronounced ripe aromas of berries and briar. A fleeting brinyness adds further complexity to the nose. Flavors lead with berries and cedar to a mouthfilling experience of ripe plum. This is what Old Vine Zinfandel is all about.
  Double Barrel
The first white wine to come from Hunter Hill is a classic blend of two white Rhone varieties, Roussanne and Viognier, this wine displays the qualitites of forward floral fruit and depth of flavor and texture. Bright expansive citrus, flowers and spice are presented by the Viogner. Roussanne adds honeysuckle and creaminess to the aromas and brings depth to the structure of the wine. Supple and full through to the finish this wine will make for a great spring or summer offering.
  Estate Merlot
A rich magenta color leads to ripe aromas of herbs, briar and smoky oak. Chocolate and hints of tobacco round out the nose. Lots of concentrated fruit gives this wine a mouth filling impression. This Merlot is a perfect representation of the long, cool growing season in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Designed for long term aging, this wine shows depth and integrity to cellar for 5-10 years. Gold Medal - Santa Cruz Mountain Competition 2005
