The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and intense, with a dramatic fruit presence. Flavors and aromas of dark cherry, ripe plum, and blueberry are complemented by sweet vanilla and brown spice. Jammy and rich, the wine has a complex and layered finish.
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent value in Napa Valley Cabernet. Layers of open, radiant fruit, leather, licorice and tar caress the palate. The wine shows terrific depth and tons of personality. Warm, spiced notes frame the soft finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.
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.
