Each wine is a testament to our winemaking acumen. At the heart of Ellie’s blend is mountain fruit that lends itself to soft tannins and a smooth finish. Coeur is distinctly St. Helena with dark fruit characteristics and bold flavors. The North End features fruit from the north end of the Napa Valley which gives the wine fruit-forward and chocolate notes.

2016 HALL Ellie's Cabernet Sauvignon
Ellie's Cabernet Sauvignon is a very approachable mineral-driven wine. The soft texture on the palate provides hints of cola and sassafras, while underlying notes of cherry, eucalyptus, and herbs lead into the mid-palate. Supple tannins give way to a graceful, smooth finish.
2016 HALL Coeur Cabernet Sauvignon
Medium ruby in color, Coeur has intensity on the nose with ripe black plum, blackberry, brambly dark fruit and warm toast. On the palate, this wine offers rich, dark fruit, cacao nibs, wet stone rounded by dusty, structured tannins.
2016 HALL The North End Cabernet Sauvignon
The North End Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet in color with inviting aromas of rosemary, thai basil, cassis, ripe black plum, and Asian spice. The palate is rich and layered, supple tannins lead into a full and decadent expression of chocolate-laced blackberry, cardamom, blackcurrant and toasted coconut. This wine showcases the rich and opulent side of Napa Cabernet.
|Vintage Notes||The 2016 vintage marked the end of the drought years, although precipitation levels were still moderate to low. Near-perfect growing conditions continued throughout the summer with a few heat spikes that the valley is known for. Yields were a bit lower than normal, but the quality of the harvest was high. The resulting wine is rich and lush, with supple tannins and opulent, elegant finishes. Wines from 2016 are a fifth consecutive vintage of stellar Napa Valley wines.|
