2019 HALL The North End Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine highlights esteemed vineyards in the “North End” of the Napa Valley, including vines grown in Calistoga, Northern St. Helena, and the mountainous appellations. The “North End” fruit shows a markedly rich and opulent side of Cabernet Sauvignon. Our blending efforts help to punctuate these characteristics in the final bottling.
|Varietal Composition||100% Cabernet Sauvignon|
|Barrel Aging||22 months in 65% New French Oak|
|Vintage Notes||The 2019 vintage began with a wet spring bringing three inches of rain in May. In response to the late rains our vineyards received diligent attention to control vigorous vine growth. A long Indian summer followed with mild weather, allowing the fruit to ripen at slow, even place. The long picking windows bore fruit with beautiful freshness at optimal ripeness. The resulting wines are exceptionally elegant.|
