2013 HALL Jack's Masterpiece Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon - Vineyard Partners
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Jack’s Masterpiece, which is a blend from their finest vineyards, displays super-sweet tannins, an opaque purple color and beautiful crème de cassis, blueberry and blackberry fruit. Its flawless integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol and its opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel make for a true elixir and fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now or cellar for 25-30 more years. I would still try to defer gratification for 2-3 years prior to drinking this big boy. It has three decades-plus of longevity."
Lots of black blackberry fruit, black cherry, caramel, and violet notes. The palate is rich, dark, dense, and extracted with a cascading black fruit finish.
Each year, Hall’s former winemaker and current President, Mike Reynolds returns to his first love and blends a signature Cabernet Sauvignon known as “Jack’s Masterpiece.” The wine is named for the label artwork created by Mike’s then 18-month-old son Jack as a Father’s Day gift.
