Winemaker's Notes:

Our Napa Valley Merlot is made in an intense fruit forward style and reveals a combination of red berry fruit aromas of plum, red cherry, raspberry, mocha, and spice. The concentrated aromas continue on the palate along with hints of chocolate and blueberry that meld into a plush, velvety finish.

About William Hill Winery:

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.
