Winemaker's Notes:

63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc

This is an elegant and balanced wine. The aromas are excellent, combining dark blackberries well integrated with oak, cherry and some chocolate. The flavors of the juicy full body fill the mouth with a lush feeling of supple tannins that linger on a long finish. There is good concentration and the acidity and tannin structure give it great aging potential.

This wine works beautifully with a succulent roast leg of lamb, beef tenderloin or rib roast.

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.
