"The deep purple-black colored barrel sample of the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon The Bishop reveals subtle notes of rose hip tea, unsmoked cigars, fragrant earth and fallen leaves over a core of warm blackberries and black cherries with the blackcurrant notes coming through after some coaxing. Full-bodied with a lovely frame of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, the perfumed palate offers beautiful poise and a long mineral-tinged finish." -- Lisa Perotti-Brown

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon The Bishop is the top multi-vineyard wine in the Hall range, and draws from a number of top sites within the Hall portfolio. Potent and yet refined, the Bishop possesses quite a bit of depth and textural resonance. Black cherry, plum, new leather and spice all flesh out in this super-expressive Cabernet. The 2016 naturally needs time to fully come together, but it already offers an intriguing combination of power and refinement." -- Antonio Galloni
