Wine Review: This pitch-black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Hall opens with a blackberry and oolong tea bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is round and savory. The flavor profile is stony mineral and black licorice blend with notes of baking spice, black currant, and cedar. The finish is dry, and its tannins show nice length. The Panel would pair it with a New York strip steak. This was very well-liked by all that tried it. It did not last very long. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Deep purple hue, this wine has inviting aromas of blackberry, star anise, leather, and dusty cocoa. The palate opens with a perfectly balanced acidity that plays off the abundant dark fruit flavors. Hints of exotic spice, earth, black pepper, and a mineral note accompany the fruit flavors beautifully. Full-bodied, rich, and lengthy - displaying abundant tannin and pleasant grip on the finish, this is a wine built for aging.
