Review: 2010 William Hill Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon

William Hill Estate Winery 2010 Napa Valley Merlot 750ml 96x300 Review: 2010 William Hill Merlot and Cabernet SauvignonTwo new wines from Napa’s William Hill, bringing the 2010 harvest to the market at last. Thoughts follow.

2010 William Hill Merlot Napa Valley – The nose is ripe and spicy, peppery with cedar, menthol, and herbs. The body, however, is curiously sedate and restrained. It drinks easy, with a somewhat sweet strawberry character at the forefront. An interesting combination of experiences here… worth exploring, but not quite challenging. B+ / $30

2010 William Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley – A prototypical Napa Cab, with deep plum and cassis on the nose, with ample and straightforward blackberries and currants on the palate. Quite sweet on the tongue, with a short finish. Uncomplicated. B+ / $40
