The Rainin Vineyard, founded in 1998 by the Rainin family, is a bucolic, eight acre site located on the rugged volcanic slopes of Diamond Mountain. The vines are nestled amongst majestic pine forests and redwood groves. The family's passion for the vineyard is reflected in their philosophy, "If it's not fun, we're not doing it." We hope you share their joie de vivre as you enjoy this singular expression of Rainin Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.

Sensationally alive and vibrant, the 2014 Rainin Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon opens as if it were a fresh-cut stem, with earth-driven layers of graphite, subtle mountain herbs and ripe black fruits in the background. Bold yet not over-powering, the firm, dense, seamless tannins are wound in dynamic tension.

Appellation: Diamond Mountain District
Varietals: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Barrel Aging: 24 Months in 100% New French Oak
Winemaker: Steve Leveque

"Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rainin Vineyard has a beguiling nose of menthol, lilacs, chocolate box and lavender over a core of blueberry compote, blackberry preserves and smoked meat, plus wafts of bay leaves and cinnamon stick. Big, rich, concentrated and with seriously intense perfumed fruit in the mouth, it has a firm, seamless structure of grainy tannins and lively acidity, finishing with epically long-lasting savory and spice notions.

"The 2014 Rainin Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a complete knockout from the talented winemaking team at Hall ... Flirting with the rare limits of perfection, this intense, opaque colored red opens with an inviting, complex bouquet of crème de cassis, roasted coffee, sweet tobacco, hoisin sauce and suggestions of black cherry compote which all come together with a seductive quality which continues to bring you back for more. The texture is hedonistic and simply ethereal, as the weight is massive, yet the wine expands effortlessly across the palate. Deep flavors of crème de cassis, mocha, crushed mint, anise and black cherry with black olive tapenade are layered and concentrated as they continue to build through the finish. Overall, this is an absolutely incredible wine, which will have a long future and continue to impress for decades to come."
