2018 Destined Heart of the Hill
Located on the far southeastern edge of the Yakima Valley, Heart of the Hill Vineyard sits mid-slope on Red Mountain. Not only is this the hottest vineyard site we source from, Red Mountain is the hottest AVA in the state of Washington. This heat leads to dark bold fruit, abounding tannins and high amounts of acid that will help this wine age for many years to come. While the soil profile of Red Mountain is mixed gravel, the windblown silt that continues to deposit on Red Mountain is prevalent in the wine’s dusty tannin profile, a true signature of the AVA’s terroir.
