If we had to pick one word to characterize our Stony Hill wines it would be balance. We aim to achieve a balance between the intensely flavored fruit from our hillside vineyards and the notable acidity that gives the wine structure and aging potential.
Our goal is simply to translate the intense fruitiness of our grapes into elegant, food friendly wines. Over the years we have remained true to this original style, which we think is the most appropriate for our particular hillside grown grapes.
The 2017 growing season was unforgettable in the Napa Valley. The harvest was small but the fruit was complex and flavorful. The vintage proved to be more than we ever could have hoped for, and it will be a joy to watch this wine evolve over time.
What we find truly unique about this vintage is the wine's ability to retain its crispness while presenting a slight creaminess on the palate. Although from a year with May rain and a cool summer, the 2011 has proved to be a quintessential Stony Hill Chardonnay.
The nose on the 2016 Cabernet is the most surprisingly opulent of any Stony Hill Cabernet we have ever produced. Right out of the gate you are met with a mix of black cherry, herbaceousness, graphite, and rich baking spices.
It’s a deeply aromatic wine with notes red cherry, blueberry fruit and a touch of green tobacco leaf that one would note in the old school Napa Cabs from the 1950s and 1960s
The nose of the 2018 vintage is vibrant and engaging, with notes of lime and green apple. There is a bit of spice as the palate opens up, followed by ripe peach and energizing citrus and pineapple. It finishes with a lasting, delicate floral touch. Stony Hill Rieslings develop beautifully with age and this vintage holds great promise for the future.

The nose on the 2018 is intense, intermixing ripe peach, grapefruit, lychee and floral notes. On the palate it begins delicately, with focus and energy. The gentle fruit offers apricot, sweet spice and a jasmine tea finish. Fresh and focused, the wine is lingering and deeply satisfying.

The drama of the 2017 growing season is reflected in the glass with this vintage. Intensely golden color, it has aromas of ripe apricot, plum and licorice. Apricot returns on the palate, along with fresh plum, rhubarb and golden raisins.
