2013 HALL T Bar T Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
Dense garnet in color, the Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is rustic to the core. Dusty scents of earth are interwoven with tobacco, black currant, graphite and black olive. Concentrated and firm on the entry, this full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon offers deep flavors of black fruits and smoked herbs. Muscular tannins provide for a lengthy finish that will reward long-term cellaring.
OUR T BAR T RANCH ESTATE STRETCHES across the steep and rugged eastern ridgeline of the Alexander Valley. The property is an ideal site for farming both Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, as the dynamic hillside terrain ensures intensely complex and concentrated fruit.
