2012 HALL Napa Valley Merlot

Merlot - 55% Hardester, 45% Partner Vineyards

Critic Review
Steve Leveque, Director of Winemaking HALL Wines
The wine is deep garnet in color " inviting notes of wet stone, sun-warmed raspberries, and a slight cooling note of fresh fennel. Its medium body delivers soft, supple tannins that are a distinctive and prized feature of our Merlot. The wine finish offers notes of baking spices. Drink now and over the next five years.

Merlot tends to ripen early, so we selected fruit from cooler vineyard sites for a result that is vibrant and expressive. The Merlot farmed at Hardester Ranch, with its gravelly hillside topography, offers weight, concentration and a rich chocolate character.
