Hall Wines

Jack's Masterpiece Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Ming L

Hall probably has the most extensive Napa cab lineups of all the producers - something like 15 different bottling. Of the several I’ve tasted, this is no doubt my favorite.
The nose and flavor are quite similar to the Anderson’s estate reserve of the same vintage, but in a more subtle way with more nuances. There is underlying elegance that sets it apart from the the other 2 bottles.

Château Lanessan

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

NOSE: fur-bearing critter … earth, iron … cacao … a bit of cassis. Savoury. Pine and forest.

TASTE: iron, blackberry, cassis, MEATY, orange chocolate, leaves…good old fashioned dirt. Great deal. Could certainly age a while. 92.

NOTE: I tasted this a year ago (I forgot!) and notes were different. Unsure if it’s me, the bottle, or the extra year of age. Anyway, I liked it both times!

Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Excellent cab. Nicely aged but could go more with no problem. Full bodied with light oak tones and a delectable richness in flavor. One of my favorites. — 6 days ago

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1990

1990 vintage. Last tasted 01.20.23 (9.6) and 05.16.21 (9.4). This slots in just between. Tastes as if from a colder cellar because this specimen was as fresh as a daisy. Decanted and tasted after 2 hours. Tannins for tannins sake. And I love big tannins. Less evolved than the January visit and drinking better than the 5.16.21 visit. Still bleeping massive. This wine and the 1989 Gaja Sorí Tilden Barbaresco the two biggest, uncompliant wines with years to go before really revealing those hidden charms that I've tasted in recent memory. Getting closer but not quite ready to settle down any time soon. 9.21.23. — 13 hours ago

Napa Valley Red Blend 2012

Very nice! 1hr+ decant. Dark red color. Dark cherries and tobacco on the nose. Similar on the palate and paired nicely with smoked boneless short ribs. Silky with a medium finish. 93.5 but rounding up. — 19 days ago

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1995

1995 vintage. Decanted and tasted after 1 hour. Still, big nose and frontal palate. Dwindles somewhat in the closing chapters. Fairly harmonious and alive for the majority of another decade. Feel there could be some bottle variation here so wouldn’t surprise me if someone posted a 9.2-9.4 tomorrow. S’life. 9.20.23. — a day ago
