2017 HALL Bergfeld Cabernet Sauvignon
Bergfeld St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon has enticing aromas of blackberry pie, vanilla, créme de cassis, and clove with savory undertones of worn leather and herbs de provence. Medium garnet in color, this wine’s dense and powerful tannins are balanced by a lush brightness and dark concentrated berries. A core of sweet oak on the mid-palate leads into a long and structured mouth-coating finish.
Créme de Cassis
Our St. Helena Estate vineyard is planted in alluvial soils above an ancient creek bed. The soils are light and packed with river rock and gravel. These well-drained soils, coupled with a warm growing region, encourage the vines to produce prodigious wines of great power.

|Vintage Notes||Our 2017 harvest wrapped up early fall following summer heat spurts and a growing season that saw significant rain throughout the state, ending a five-year drought. The season began with rainfall that refilled reservoirs and replenished soils. Harvest began early at a normal pace, and then progressed rapidly during a heat wave in late August and early September. Temperatures cooled mid-September, slowing the harvest pace and allowing grapes to ripen gradually. This is a strong quality vintage.|
