James Suckling, 96 Points 

"First vintage from here, but what pedigree! Dark and rich fruits on the nose with blueberries, blackberries, and lightly toasted oak. Full and rich with lovely soft tannins and long finish. Lots of chocolate and berries. Dense and gorgeous with a marvelous mouth feel. Pure velvet texture. What a harmonious wine. Made from three blocks of vineyards. Reminds me of some old Beaulieu Vineyards from the 1970s. Already lovely." 

Wine Advocate, 95 Points 

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep, powerful wine laced with dark plums, spices, licorice and tar, all of which come together gracefully in the glass. A long, long finish adds to an impression of great balance and sheer pedigree. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028. Vine Hill Ranch is nestled between Harlan Estate and Dominus. Not bad for neighbors. The Phillips family has owned Vine Hill Ranch since 1959, but records show the land has been cultivated as far back as 1884. With their inaugural 2008 release, the Phillips family is making the move from grape growers to winemakers. The Vine Hill Ranch team includes vineyard manager Mike Wolf and winemaker Francoise Peschon. The three vintages I tasted were all super-impressive. Vine Hill Ranch has to be one of the most exciting debuts in Napa Valley."
