William Hill Winery, now “Estate”, is one of those Napa Valley wineries that doesn’t get a lot of buzz but constantly produces very good wines at affordable prices. Specializing in Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards in Carneros and the Stags Leap District, the winery is now owned by Fortune Brands. Although estate grown, the wines are made in sufficient quantities to be widely available in most U.S. states.
William Hill Winery, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2000 ($22) – Garnet in color with aromas of black cherry and sage. In the mouth, this wine is rich in texture with black cherry & currant fruit flavors finishing with black pepper and plush tannins. I think this wine will still be at it’s peak for another year or two. It’s throwing some sediment, so you should decant. A very nice value in Napa Cab.
