2013 HALL Napa Valley Merlot 1.5L
Merlot tends to ripen early, so we selected fruit from cooler vineyard sites for a result that is vibrant and expressive. The Merlot farmed at Hardester Ranch, with its gravelly hillside topography, offers weight, concentration and a rich chocolate character.
|Bottle Size||1.5 Liter|
|Varietal Composition||80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot|
|Barrel Aging||20 Months in 45% New French Oak|
|Vineyard||55% Hardester, 45% Partner Vineyards|
|Vintage Notes||Deep garnet in color, this wine starts with a beautiful voluminous entry of cascading red fruit and a soft, lush texture. A pretty, floral, fruit-driven wine with aromas of rose petal, very ripe raspberry, milk chocolate, burning embers and vanilla. A serious merlot drinkers wine ideal for everyday celebrations. Still in its youth, decanting is recommended one hour prior to drinking.|
