2019 HALL Craig's Cabernet Sauvignon
Effusive aromas of black plum mingle with subtle notes of bay leaf and wet gravel. The powerful palate is dark and concentrated, with a core of structured, refined tannin and flavors of black cherry and cocoa nib. This is an exceptionally balanced, and highly drinkable wine that is meant to be enjoyed now, and for years to come.

|Our 2019 growing began with ample rainfall and lingering soil moisture. A warm, extended summer saw very few extreme heat events, with foggy mornings setting the stage for vibrant and expressive wines. The long, relatively mild finish to the season helped to preserve freshness and balance in the fruit with hang time that allowed for impressive color, structure and tannin. This is an exceptional vintage defined by well integrated acidity, dense texture, and great depth.
