HALL "Napa River Ranch" Merlot
OUR HALL NAPA RIVER RANCH MERLOT is a small production blend of select barrels of our best vineyard blocks from Napa River Ranch. Situated in the cool southeast corner of the Napa Valley, the site produces wines with velvety fruit, excellent structure, and dense tannins.
This 100% Merlot possesses a gorgeous deep, dark ruby hue. Extraverted aromas of dark sweet plum, cocoa powder, and fig bound from the glass. On the palate, the wine delivers a wave of forward black fruit, dark spice, and chocolate toasted coconut. Possessing a well-defined frame, focus, and balance, this wine is impressive now and will gain richness and fullness over the next decade.
