Winemaker's Notes:

Following three critically acclaimed vintages of Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Hall is delighted to release the 2009 Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage is brimming with aromas of cassis and blackberry pie and expresses aromas of black fruit, white chocolate and toasted almonds. Round and soft on the palate, opulent flavors of dark bing cherry, jam, and caramel lead to a velvety finish. Expect this wine to age gracefully over the next 10+ years.

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec, and 1% Cabernet Franc
