William Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Rich and dark on the nose with fine earth and dried herb base notes topped with vanilla, wood toast, black cherry licorice, and blackcurrant aromas. This is a pretty spicy Cabernet, with notes of black pepper and licorice interwoven with sweeter notes of vanilla and toast on a bed of dry blackberry and black cherry fruit. the tannins are a bit spiky, but pleasant—more hard than abundant—and they add some nice cut to the palate and extend on to the slightly astringent yet well-fruited finish. A nice blend of wine that toes the line between traditional and modern. Would be best with food. 88pts

William Hill Estate Winery is a special place founded in 1978. Set on a benchland - off the valley floor, but below the steeper slopes of the hills - with a southwestern exposure, the vines bask in abundant sunlight.
