2013 HALL Ellie's Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon -
"This wine opens with big, full-bodied and extracted flavors, highlighted by black cherry, smoked meat and clove. Blended with 4% Merlot, it exudes textural complexity and velvety lushness, with length and breadth to spare. Within its fountain of power exists a strong sense of grace, accented by aromas of wild violet and forested earth."
Ellie’s is dense garnet in color, with lifted aromas of cassis, fresh blackberry, violets, earth, black olive, black pepper, and high tone barrel spices of cinnamon, clove and caramel. The seamless palate is fresh, elegant, lengthy, earthy and chocolatey. The wine finishes full of energy with a balanced wash of acidity.
