If you have been watching Napa Cabernet Sauvignon prices recently, including here on Crave, they can easily go into the mid three digits. It is nice to find one that does not require a mortgage to purchase. The 2010 William Hill Estate fits the bill (pun intended) perfectly. At a suggested retail price of $40, it brings home the template of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon without the financial pain.
This wine is ready to drink now but will keep for 3-5 years if you prefer. Match it with the classic American pairing, steak cooked on the grill, or with lamb, or game. I recommend opening it about an hour before the meal to let it breathe. This will allow the blackberry fruit and lead pencil notes to emerge.
Widely available in the Dallas area.
