2019 HALL Coeur Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep ruby purple in color, the 2019 Coeur opens with effusive aromas of blackberry, cassis, cola and red fruit. The palate is opulent with a harmonious balance of fruit, oak and tannin which carries through the lengthy finish.
In creating this blend, we realized the great potential of our vineyard sourcing within St. Helena. Unique for its gravelly, low vigor soils and a cooling influence of Pacific breezes from the north, the fruit from this region produces a stylistically lush, aromatic wine with a dense core of dark briary fruit.
|Varietal Composition||100% Cabernet Sauvignon|
|Barrel Aging||26 Months in 65% New French Oak|
|Vintage Notes||Our 2019 growing began with ample rainfall and lingering soil moisture. A warm, extended summer saw very few extreme heat events, with foggy mornings setting the stage for vibrant and expressive wines. The long, relatively mild finish to the season helped to preserve freshness and balance in the fruit with hang time that allowed for impressive color, structure and tannin. This is an exceptional vintage defined by well integrated acidity, dense texture, and great depth.|
