(2006 Vintage) Our 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an orchestral mélange of hand-selected fruit from our Hardester, Napa River Ranch, Bergfeld and Sacrashe vineyards. Each distinctive terroir interweaves complementary components which culminate in a preeminent Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, a gestalt of balanced, rich, concentrated character. The inviting deep ruby color and rich aromatics of cassis, roasted espresso bean and dark ripe plum follow through with flavors of blackberry, crème cassis and hints of graphite that linger relentlessly. Rewarding now, this wine will continue read more...to impress for 5-10 years. (hide)
2006 HALL Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 94 Points "A rich, dense, concentrated style, this is full-bodied, focused and pure, with hints of mocha and black licorice rounding out the core currant, plum and black cherry flavors. Focused and persistent, with a long finish." —James Laube, Wine Spectator Insider, March, 2010
Aroma of petrol, strong alcohol, but taste of snooth silky blackcurrant, cinnamon. Very tight and tasty.
Balanced Napa Cab. Chappellet tasted side by side was better.
