This wine is dark garnet in color with layers of blackberry, black cherry, sweet spice, black pepper, and oak. On the palate, there is bold, dark fruit at the forefront of this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that gives way to flavors of cocoa, nutmeg and graphite. The tannins are chewy and powerful, balanced by refreshing acidity on the long finish.
“A smoking value, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley offers classic notes of blackcurrant and blackberry fruits intermixed with more earthy, tapenade, and olive-like aromas and flavors. It too is full-bodied, has remarkable purity, a seamless texture, and a beautiful finish. It tastes like it cost 2-3 times the price.” – 94 Points, Jeb Dunnick
“COMMENTARY: Hall Wines have produced the quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon for more than a decade. The 2016 vintage is an excellent effort. TASTING NOTES: This wine is classic as it defines the Napa Valley red wine profile. Its aromas and flavors of pomegranate and blackberries should pair its superbly with grilled lamb chops.
