Outer quote mark This is a one-off bottling of a special plot of old vines. Full body, dense and polished with a beautiful presence and balance. It's tannic wine but polished and textured. More class. Great length. Only four barrels made. Inner quote mark (1/2018)

98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Golden Hill emerges from a single block on the estate planted with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel, the 2014 possesses remarkable finesse and stunning beauty. The Golden Hill has a level of mid-palate depth and resonance that distinguishes it from the straight Mayacamas Cabernet. A vivid wine with breathtaking depth and complexity, the 2014 is shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage. In this tasting, it is utterly thrilling from the first taste. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A rare single-site bottling from Mayacamas, the Golden Hill Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from some of the highest-elevation vines on the hillside of Mount Veeder, planted in 1989. This wine is captivating from the first sniff: seductive, floral, powerful and constantly evolving. It perfectly encapsulated the dense, rustic and saline power that Mount Veeder fruit is known for, and should continue to do so for at least the next three decades. (ML) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

K&L Notes

From a small single block high on the Mayacams Estate comes Golden Hill. A parcel of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon growing in particularly rugged volcanic soils. Sadly this renowed block, singled out for its exceptional quality and unique character, was destroyed in the 2017 wild fires that ravaged the region. This is a tiny release, direct from the winery and is VERY limited.
