HALL Wines, one of the top producers of Cabernet Sauvignon in California has recently released the 2009 HALL “Napa Valley” Cabernet Sauvignon. A part of the HALL Napa Valley Collection, the 2009 HALL “Napa Valley” Cabernet Sauvignon is available nationwide at select dining establishments and wine shops.
The 2009 vintage is a true embodiment of the HALL winemaking philosophy, which focuses on crafting artisan wines by employing organic small-vine viticulture, precision winemaking, wild yeast fermentation, and unfined and unfiltered bottling.
“At HALL Wines we offer an elegant and stylish approach to the wine experience that combines the art of winemaking, design and contemporary art,” said Kathryn Hall, Owner and Vintner of HALL Wines. “The release of the 2009 HALL “Napa Valley” Cabernet Sauvignon is our latest effort to bring the “HALL” experience to consumers’ every day life.”
Fused with special lots from HALL estate vineyards and esteemed fruit from HALL’s premier vineyard partners, the 2009 HALL “Napa Valley” Cabernet Sauvignon is brimming with aromas of cassis and blackberry pie, articulating black fruit, white chocolate and toasted almonds. On the palate, the wine is round and soft featuring opulent flavors of dark bing cherry, jam and dark cocoa transcending into a velvety finish. The 2009 vintage will gracefully age over the next ten plus years.
HALL Wines’ focus, from vine to glass, is to deliver a dense, supple Cabernet Sauvignon that consistently over-delivers. In striving to achieve this, HALL’s winemaking practices include blending grapes that exude the best characteristics by growing block specific varietals. Each vineyard is harvested by block to segregate the grapes throughout the fermentation process.
As winegrowers and visionaries, Kathryn Hall and husband Craig Hall, have a strong respect for the environment and a commitment to cutting-edge vineyard technology to yield the highest quality grapes. HALL St. Helena is California’s first winery to receive the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Green Building Rating System™. HALL Wines is a recipient of Organic Farming Certification from The California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), one of the nation’s oldest and largest organic certification and trade associations.
