2018 HALL Ellie's Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon -
Review coming soon...
Dark purple with ruby highlights, this wine opens with aromas of blackberry, olive tapenade, and freshly turned earth. The palate is dense and opulent with well-knit tannins that drive its unctuous texture. Blackberry, cassis, violet and olive dominate the flavor profile. The finish is long and smooth, with supple tannin and fresh acidity.
This wine is named for Craig Hall's mother, Eleanor “Ellie” Hall, who was an artist and a teacher. She inspired Craig’s love of art and it is her artwork that graces this wine’s label. Crafting this blend is an exercise in texture. Vineyard sources are selected for their elegance with tannins that are soft, lush, opulent and feminine in character. The palate is driven by minerality, cassis, and a floral perfume.
