Packed to the hilt with power and points, just the way we like it. Vinous calls it “A stunning bottle... Rich, deep and beautifully resonant in the glass.” Strong black pepper notes are a signature of the site, but 2018 brings in a lavender nuance that changes the game. Fruit-driven and coiled with a succulent, savory side, “the interplay of textural richness and energy is simply breathtaking.

Vinous

A stunning bottle, the 2018 Pinot Noir Radian brings together all the elements that make the Hilt wines so compelling. Rich, deep and beautifully resonant in the glass, the Radian has so much to offer. A rush of dark red/purplish berry fruit, rose petal, lavender, mint and sweet spice build in a dramatic, statuesque Pinot loaded with character and personality. The interplay of textural richness and energy is simply breathtaking.
