    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2006 vintage of our HALL Napa Valley Merlot is a rich cuveé from two of our premier estate vineyards. HALL's extensive vineyard holdings have allowed us to determine and cultivate the most ideal locations for our Merlot vines. Merlot from our Hardester Vineyard is planted in limiting soils on a hillside enclave to promote intensely concentrated, small berries with great structure and backbone. The cool valley-floor vines at Napa River Ranch allow this Merlot to express generous red fruit and a velvety texture.

    Expect an alluring nose of bing cherry, violets, cocoa and baking spice which leads seamlessly on the palate to a rich and elegant mid-palate. Expressive flavors of dark cherry, toasted oak and blackberry jam will continue to evolve for the next 5-7 years.

    Here at HALL, we are passionate about environmental responsibility and sustainable stewardship of our land. All of our vineyards have been farmed organically since 2007, to date 355 acres have been Certified organic by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). The last of the estate vineyards, known as Hardester Ranch with 145 planted acres, will receive its organic certification on August 18, 2010. Farming organically involves committing to two principals: ecological production and maintaining organic integrity. Production methods must conserve soil, pollute little and promote a healthy ecosystem.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dense purple-black hue. Powerful scents of black cherry, menthol and shoe polish. Plush tannins and ripe flavors of black cherry, maple and rum cake. Hints of soy sauce and vanilla in the blackberry-driven close.
