William Hill Estate Winery

Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

10 cases produced

The best wines are crafted by winemakers who stay close to the vineyard, who select their grapes by hand at the perfect moment of ripeness, who taste their barrel selections and who blend the individual lots together to create an exquisitely balanced wine. This is how Ralf Holdenried makes wine at William Hill Estate Winery—and he wouldn't have it any other way. This offering for Premiere Napa Valley is comprised of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, chosen by Ralf from the best blocks on our estate, and displays elegant red and black fruit aromas, and flavors with notes of ripe cherry, brown spice, and sweet vanilla. The soft, plush mouthfeel, intense fruit and silky tannins evolve into a long, impressive, fruit-focused finish.
