2020 HALL Bergfeld Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 2020 Bergfeld opens with a brooding, fruit-driven nose of ripe blackberries, warm oak, wet stone and freshly cracked pepper. Structured tannins support the broad palate that opens up into flavors of dark chocolate, tobacco and baking spice. The fruit-driven character persists through the long and powerful finish.
Freshly Cracked Pepper
Our St. Helena Estate vineyard is planted in alluvial soils above an ancient creek bed. The soils are light and packed with river rock and gravel. These well-drained soils, coupled with a warm growing region, encourage the vines to produce prodigious wines of great power.

|Vintage Notes||The winter of 2020 was warm and dry, setting off budbreak and the growing season slightly earlier than usual throughout Napa Valley. It wasn't until the end of March that cold, rainy weather arrived, and the mild spring gave the vines a strong, early start. Moderately warm days held through the summer and early fall, allowing the fruit to ripen slowly and develop complex flavor and tannin balance, while maintaining fresh acidity. This vintage produced great wines that are concentrated, focused, and beautifully balanced.|
