Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Great duck wine! Not in-your-face fruity like other Cali cab sauvs. Nicely integrated tannin, good acidity, and beautiful black cherry, plum, caramel and cocoa flavours. Excellent hostess gift! A crowd pleaser for sure. Tasted July 2017.
Colin McKone rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This highly affordable California Cabernet Sauvignon has armoas of plum, blackberry, smoke, toasted vanilla and baking spices. Flavours of jammie plum, blackberry and mild spice follow through on the palate. It is a full bodied wine with well balanced tannins and acidity. Enjoy with with a nice steak or medium rare roast beef.
Camelia Bucur rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

William Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 on the nose brings out a lot of sweet spices with hints of blackberries and plums. On the palate, the jamminess of the plums comes out with a sweet edge to it from the sweet spices. It's a dry, medium tannins and with a long finish. Full bodied and smooth can be enjoyed with a nice pulled pork dish.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Blackberry, plum, smoke, and a hint of vanilla in the aroma. Smells 'deep'. The taste is smooth blackberry and plum with some milk chocolate as well. Medium acidity and medium+ tannins. Perfect for prime rib, or braised beef.

Natalie's Review

William Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, North Coast, California, United States: A superbly balanced and elegant Californian Cabernet with great restraint, yet not shy on flavour or character at all. Aromas of fleshy black plum and smoke. Supple and smooth and juicy. Pair with roast beef. Drink: 2015-2019. 453647 14% XD 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 91/100. June 5, 2016 Top Rated Red Wine.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
