Winemaker's Notes

This is a fruit-driven wine that exhibits aromas of cassis, dark plum and blackberry. A small percentage of grapes underwent whole berry fermentation, which contributes soft tannins and added richness, polished texture and an earthy body.

While summer's warm start caused anxiety over the threat of premature ripening, an influx of marine fog in August allowed grapes to hang long enough for optimal flavor development. An excellent vintage with slightly low yields, this 2001 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays a touch more backbone than that grown in 2000 while retaining desired concentration.

Try this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with roasted prime rib in a cracked pepper crust, grilled veal chops with rosemary or a tender lamb chop.

Since 1978, William Hill Winery has produced wines from the cool southern regions of Napa Valley, including the Silverado Bench and the Carneros districts. The winery specializes in Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, producing Reserve and Napa Valley bottlings. Chardonnay grown in the cool climate and well-drained soils of Carneros typically offer brighter, more intense flavors and higher acidity than grapes grown in the richer soils and warmer temperatures at the upper end of the Napa Valley. The result are Chardonnays that are highly complex and multi-layered with crisp, bright flavors.
