I think we were one of the first people to try Hillcrest. The wines tasted very new, very young. The man pouring for us was nice. He even admitted that the wines will get better with age. We bought a bottle of their sauvignon blanc (tasting fee is waived with purchase), but was not impressed. I think I'd like to try Hillcrest again, but in a couple of years. I'm interested in seeing improvement.
