2016 HALL The North End Cabernet Sauvignon
"...the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon North End is a ripe, upfront, beautifully fruited effort that offers lots of currants, smoked earth, chocolate and hints of earth. It's broad, expansive and ripe, with enough tannin and depth to keep for 15 years."
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.
This wine highlights esteemed vineyards in the “North End” of the Napa Valley, including vines grown in Calistoga, Northern St. Helena, and the mountainous appellations. The “North End” fruit shows a markedly rich and opulent side of Cabernet Sauvignon. Our blending efforts help to punctuate these characteristics in the final bottling.
