HALL "T Bar T Ranch"
OUR T BAR T RANCH IS SITUATED on a rugged, rocky hillside in Alexander Valley. Its topography is extremely demanding for our vines as well as our vineyard team who must navigate the small craggy parcels.
In the glass this deep purple wine seems to emit an ultraviolet glow. Aromatically, this wine has a massive floral lift of fresh, crushed violets, raspberry reduction, and roasted black plum. On the palate, there is an explosive power, a sheer brawn of dense, firm tannins that derive from such limited, mountainous growing conditions. This muscularity carries a beautiful surge of layered blackberry and black plum, black spice, melted licorice, and tar—a dark, earthiness emblematic of our T Bar T Ranch. Look forward to this wine gracefully aging for the next 10-12 years.
