2012 HALL Bergfeld St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon - Bergfeld Vineyard
"Offers pure, rich, explosive fruit, with tiers of blackberry, wild berry, cherry and spice flavors, delivering touches of black licorice and cedary oak. Glides along with a touch of toasty oak and espresso, tightening on the finish. Drink now through 2027."
Deep plum in color, this wine is brooding with a fruit-driven nose of juicy blackberry pie, toasty oak, wet stone and black pepper. The palate exudes dark briary fruit. Structured tannins provide a robust mouth-feel with a wash of acidity, and hints of dark chocolate and tobacco.
Our “Bergfeld” St. Helena vineyard is 100% estate fruit, planted in light gravelly alluvial soils strewn across an ancient creek bed. The well-drained soils and warm growing conditions produce wines of immense power. The unique nature of this site ensures low vine vigor, small crops and intensely concentrated berries with balanced acidity.
