HALL Wines is located in Napa Valley and employs organic small-vine viticulture and precision winemaking. ‘16 is a blend of 98% Merlot and 2% Cab Sauv. Very deep Ruby with rich berry fruit aromas, complex but not overpowering adding a touch of floral and spice. On the palate raspberry and rich cherry flavors with vanilla, cacao and some oak. Smooth tannins, great balance, long finish, a joy to drink.

A little hot, but nice supple fruit structure, big tannins for a napa merlot. Great w steak/Gorgonzola/roasted red pepper salad.

A lot of soft tannins and subdued fruit. Long, mouth filling finish.
