2011 HALL Jack's Masterpiece Cabernet Sauvignon
Cellar Selection | "The 4% Petit Verdot in this dark, inky Cabernet Sauvignon is doing its job in terms of color and structure, adding much of both to the mix. Overall the wine is savory and full-bodied on the palate, with bits of spicy clove and sage around black cherry and toasted oak. Enjoy through 2030."
2011 Jack’s Masterpiece Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a dark ruby/purple color. The high-tone, vibrant aromas awaken the memory of very ripe raspberries warmed by the summer sun, with a floral element of violets, balanced by sweet, well-integrated French oak. The overall effect is subtle and deep. The palate is intense and full-bodied with flavors of dark ripe cherry, plentiful satiny tannins and rich toasted oak on the long finish. A sleek, urbane wine enjoyable to savor on its own. Will continue to mature over 15+ years.
Each year, Hall’s former winemaker and current President, Mike Reynolds returns to his first love and blends a signature Cabernet Sauvignon known as “Jack’s Masterpiece.” The wine is named for the label artwork created by Mike’s then 18-month-old son Jack as a Father’s Day gift.
