Dark garnet in color, the 2012 HALL Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays strong aromas of pure dark fruit with a floral lift of fresh rose. The palate is bright, concentrated and dense with plenty of structured tannins buttressed by French oak. The result is a well integrated, nuanced and complex wine.
AFTER A VERY CHALLENGING AND SHY BEARING 2011 VINTAGE, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon experienced a truly extraordinary vintage. Critics are hailing the 2012 as historically significant. Idyllic growing conditions featuring warm, temperate weather, an absence of heat spikes and no troubling rains, allowed us to pick according to perfectly ripened flavors and tannins. A winemaker’s vintage, to be sure!
