Winemaker's Notes:

Hall is pleased to release their alluring 2006 Sauvignon Blanc. This wine has been crafted from three premier Napa Valley vineyards that lend distinctive expressions of the varietal. The wine offers aromas of passion fruit, pear blossom, and zesty citrus. Ruby red grapefruit leaps from the glass and continues through the lengthy palate, framed by a lively acidity that delivers a clean crisp rise in the mid-palate. Lemon grass and hints of butterscotch linger with a silky texture, reminiscent of the refreshing finish that is the "HALLmark" of their Napa Valley Sauvignon Blancs from years past.

"A classy wine, made Sancerre-style, with high acidity, a delicate mouthfeel and a dry finish. The acidity energizes the palate, working through lime and mineral flavors, and picking up a richer note of savory figs on the finish."
