Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from William Hill is very nice. It opens with a blackberry and black cherry nose. It is medium bodied and pleasant to drink. On the palate, we tasted blackberry and black cherry with a hint of dark chocolate. It finishes with prominent dry tannins and that do not stick around too long. This Cab would be best served with barbecued ribs. - Karen and Stuart
Winemaker Notes: Our William Hill Estate North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich palate of dark fruit flavors, with subtle hints of caramel and cocoa. The Sonoma and Napa fruit gave this wine its ripe blackberry and black cherry flavors, while the grapes from Lake and Mendocino brought tremendous structure and presence to the blend. This Cabernet, which was blended with a touch of Merlot to round out the mouthfeel, will reveal more complex layers with time in the bottle.
