William Hill Estate Bench Blend Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 750ml

William Hill Estate Bench Blend Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

William Hill’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Bench Blend bursts from the glass with layers of mocha, plums, black cherries, violet and spices. This is another of the richer, more voluptuous wines in the lineup. There is plenty of structure and acidity to lend vibrancy to the fruit. A long, polished finish makes it hard to resist a second taste.

The other wine that stood out for me was William Hill’s 2013 Bench Blend Proprietary Red, which is composed of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Petite Sirah, 18% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. This large cuvée of just over 4,100 cases is outstanding. Deep blackcurrant and blackberry fruit intermixed with some loamy soil undertones, pepper, and forest floor are all present in this opaque ruby/purple, full-bodied wine. It was aged 18 months in 40% new French oak and is drinking beautifully already, but will last for at least another 4-5 years. This is the sleeper selection in the William Hill Estate lineup as far as I’m concerned.

Among our best wines, the bottlings in our Bench Blend Collection illustrate the quintessential characteristics of Napa Valley: lush, expressive fruit. These wines are soft, elegant and beautifully integrated, melding grapes from hand selected vineyard blocks that deliver intense flavor characteristics. They are a testament to the extraordinary vineyards of southern Napa. A showcase of what artful blending can accomplish, the inaugural release of our William Hill Estate Bench Blend offers notes of black cherry, boysenberry and baking spice. The palate is full and expansive with a rich intensity, chewy tannins and a long finish.

A dry winter and warm, dry spring initiated an early start to the 2007 growing season. The weather remained fairly mild through the harvest months with the only heat spike occurring in early September. Temperatures cooled throughout the remainder of September which slowed the ripening of certain varietals and set a good pace for the rest of harvest. This allowed winemakers to focus on bringing in and crushing one variety at a time. Overall, the 2007 crop was much smaller and produced lower alcohol levels in the wines than in 2005 and 2006, but quality is exceptional. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested by hand and gently destemmed and crushed prior to fermentation. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak barrels.
