Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon shows rich, concentrated aromatics of currant, blackberry, and ripe cherry complemented by hints of toasty oak. Flavors of leather and nutmeg coalesce with plum and vanilla in the concentrated mid-palate and settle into a seductive, chewy finish.

This wine is ready to enjoy now and will continue to mature and evolve for the next 7-10 years.
