Winemaker's Notes:

HALL is pleased to release their alluring 2005 Sauvignon Blanc. This wine, selected from three premier Napa Valley vineyards, shows the fresh aromas of grapefruit, lime and melon along with subtle floral notes. The palate is noted by deep textural characters and richness with an underscore of racy acidity leading to a long, refreshing finish which is the "HALLmark" of their Sauvignon Blanc.

90 POINTS. "I love this wine for its acidic dryness, which is Sauvignon Blanc's first duty. The wine has a refreshing tartness, relieved by rich lime zest and green apple flavors, with a scour of grapefruit. With no oak at all, it's one classy sipper."
Wine Enthusiast, November 2006
