30 Years in the Making…
Tetra Napa Valley – a harmonious fusion of four – is the culmination of over 30 years of vineyard design and wine-making experience of Napa Valley viticulture visionary Bill Hill.
This powerful, yet elegant effort was blended to perfection by winemaker Patrick Mahaney with the goal of highlighting the four Bordeaux varietals most loved by Bill – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot
Though historically, Bill has focused his wine-making endeavors on single vineyard, single variety wines – his passion for Bordeaux, more specifically the wines of Châteaux Lafite, Mouton Rothschild, and Latour (a zeal born in his travels to France) had inspired the desire to create a Napa Valley Bordeaux style blend – a wine of truly exceptional quality and character – but one he would not craft until the conditions were perfect.
2006 brought just such a vintage and Tetra was born. The name “Tetra” (meaning four, four parts, having four) was chosen to signify the four “noble” Bordeaux varieties other than Malbec selected for the blend and the four vineyards from which the varieties were being sourced.
Truly “a harmonious fusion of four” – Tetra is Bill’s masterwork to date…
