It is Sunday evening and the first wine we have opened is the 2012 Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This was a gift from one of my life long friends that is here in Palm Springs.

The nose has notes of black fruit, black cherry, blackberry, cassis, oak and a mineral note although a bit on the weak side.

On the palate the black fruit is prominent with black cherry, blackberry, some licorice, vanilla, smoky oak and earth notes.

The wine is medium to full bodied with medium acidity, medium smooth tannins, a very drinkable wine right now.

The weekend is at an end and the workweek is upon us. Have a great week and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷

PnP: Really tight. Aggressive tannins. Muted fruit. Medium length. After an hour in the glass it opened up a bit to reveal a medium palate of raspberry and spice. Not a bad wine and for $35 it was a good deal assuming my other bottles mature.

Mouth griping acidity. Moderate astringency. Juicy texture. Solid Cab.

Fresh tropical 🌴 fruit notes on the nose. Palate is tart and tangy with bracing acid.

I've never been head over heels with the wines here but they are always okay. To be fair, haven't done an exhaustive tasting of their wines.
