Sipping Fine Wine

A blend of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon & 1% Petit Verdot, aged 24 Months in 70% New French Oak, grapes sourced from eastern side of Napa, on Vaca Range where Hall has vines. In 1873 Captain William Peterson came to Napa and established a winery on Hall’s property, and this winery and site became important for Napa, producing 40% of its entire vintage from that 1 site. Deep Ruby, medium+ aroma intensity of dark berry fruits and aromatic spice. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit, black pepper and cinnamon spice. Chewy structured firm tannins, good integration with lively acidity, great mouthfeel, long finish ending with fruit, spice and bits of minerality. Tasting Sample!

One of the Christmas wines enjoyed yesterday. I’ve had many Hall wines, but never this, and I will certainly make it a point to keep my eyes out for this. One of the best Hall wines I’ve had in a while.

Blind, I would have guessed this was Syrah. There was a significant amount of smoked meat, teriyaki coated blackberries, and roasted plum on the nose. The palate showed hoisin sauce, cassis, tobacco leaf and savory spices with a blackberry/blueberry pie finish. Less fruit here than other Hall wines, but the savory components really stood out in a good way.

Classy and not too punchy at all with oak. Sophisticated with enough layers to drink more. Will definitely wait another year to try it again.

We had the 1873 along with their Jack's Masterpiece which is 40% more and I preferred this. Nice midrange fruit and not too much tannins with a very solid finish. I think it's more accessible than their more Napa style big cabs and the vineyard and winery are just spectacular.

Just a bomb of a Cab. Uber complex with loads of blackberry and blueberry. You can't ignore the beautiful floral finish. The bottle age really helped this finish out the tannins. Glorious.

Dark red color. Black currant, leathery, old books. Soft on front of tongue. Tanniny as moves back, dry with leather heavy bold on palette, undertones of earth. Surprising smoother softer fade, but lingering tannins tho. So chewy.
