January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.

Have to give it to Hall...they know how to churn out consistent wines. I called this Bordeaux, actually. Never had a Hall this old. It’s shed the baby fat of red, blue and black fruit and showing more plum and cassis. Little bit of leather to it, with some dark cocoa dusted dates. Drinking nice, but I think I enjoy Hall’s winemaking style in its youth a touch more than 10yrs of age on them.

Really enjoying this 2013 @Hall Wines T Bar T Ranch Alexander Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Exudes grapefruit and floral notes.

In comparison to the Kathryn Hall, much more approachable now. More compacted. A combo of blackberry, cinnamon bread, and oak. Attacks the tongue with medium toast and a bit of toffee. Have not had a Hall wine that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed.

Best T Bar T I have had from Hall. Soft, fully integrated, and well balanced.

May have held this a bit too long. most of the fruit is gone but it is very smooth and easy to drink.

Just A bit harsh and Tannic. Perhaps more time in the cellar or in a decanter because the wine has a lot of backbone.

Hall Cab in the Alexander Valley, a bit different from their Napa Cabs. Tastes great, subtle, ripe cherries, round, balanced, creamy finish. Light tannins.

2012 was a stellar vintage in Alexander Valley. Producing ripe fruit, good acid and complex mouthfeel from mix of French oak in this HALL T Bar T Sauvignon Blanc. 4 stars, highly recommend!
