2013 HALL Darwin Red Wine
The 2013 Darwin exemplifies the characteristics of cool climate Syrah, emanating a nuanced perfume of ripe mission fig, charcuterie, creosote bush and crushed rocks. The rich, concentrated palate is ripe yet refreshing with a tertiary flavor of Medjool dates. This wine is loaded with personality and finishes on a beautiful note of minerality.
Named for the town of Darwin, Australia, where Kathryn and Craig's small plane required an emergency landing. Once safely on the ground, the Hall's toasted their well-being with an Aussie Shiraz/Cabernet blend and pledged to craft a similarly poignant wine in the Napa Valley.
