2013 Tasting Room Collection
Bench Blend Petit Verdot

Our Benchland Series wines are crafted from select blocks on our estate vineyard to display intense fruit flavors and layers of complexity. Our William Hill Estate Benchland Series Petit Verdot is rich and concentrated, with blackberry notes highlighting an abundance of dark fruit flavors that burst from the glass. The wine has a creamy mouthfeel that lingers with earthy tones, toasty oak and macadamia nut. The long finish has a touch of white pepper and a burst of fruit that adds a refreshing brightness to the full body.

All of the grapes were selected from our estate vineyard on the Silverado Bench in Napa. Renowned for our long growing seasons with warm, sunny days and cool evenings, the 2013 growing season was outstanding from its timely bud break through sun- filled summer growing days. Harvest began in late August with continuing excellent conditions, allowing us to pick our grapes precisely when they reached ideal ripeness and maturity. The phenomenal growing season and our careful timing helped us produce this extraordinary vintage with balanced acidity and rich, integrated flavors.
