Winemaker's Notes

Among our best wines, the bottlings in our Bench Blend Collection illustrate the quintessential characteristics of Napa Valley: lush, expressive fruit. These wines are soft, elegant and beautifully integrated, melding grapes from hand selected vineyard blocks that deliver intense flavor characteristics. They are a testament to the extraordinary vineyards of southern Napa.

Critical Acclaim

"William Hill’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Bench Blend bursts from the glass with layers of mocha, plums, black cherries, violet and spices. This is another of the richer, more voluptuous wines in the lineup. There is plenty of structure and acidity to lend vibrancy to the fruit. A long, polished finish makes it hard to resist a second taste."

Since 1978, William Hill Winery has produced wines from the cool southern regions of Napa Valley, including the Silverado Bench and the Carneros districts.

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.
