GIFT PACK HALL 2010 CABERNET & DUMOL 2011 CHARDONNAY

HALL 2010 CABERNET SAUVIGNON - Kathryn and Craig Hall are well on their way to creating one of the top wineries in the Napa Valley. Their commitment to acquire the best vineyards is aided by Director of Vineyards Don Munk, who oversees HALL's 500 acres of classic Bordeaux varietals so that only the best is brought to the winery. Couple the resulting grapes with talented and nurturing winemakers like Steve Leveque and Megan Gunderson, and you have the foundation for success! Prior releases of their single-vineyard Cabernets have garnered lofty praise from Wine Spectator, and now their vineyard-blended Cabernet is quickly catching up!

DUMOL 2011 CHARDONNAY - DuMol's Russian River Valley Chardonnay is comprised of fruit from seven prestigious vineyards, including their Estate Vineyards, Dutton Ranch, Heintz, Hyde, Ritchie, and Lorenzo. Hand harvested grapes were sorted in the vineyards then whole-cluster pressed. Barrel fermented with native yeasts and native malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 15 months in 40% new French oak.

Winemaker Andy Smith believes the 2011 RRV bottling is "vineyard designate" qualitiy! Slightly more introverted than the 2010, the 2011 needs a bit of air to coax the full level of aromas and flavors. Brilliant pale straw in color, this has the trademark DuMol aromatic intensity of lemon curd, lemon grass, sweet lime, quince, and richer citrus. Immediately fruit driven and precise palate, grapefruit, white nectarine and Gravenstein apple flavors join with lively, tense and piercing with sea spray and mint notes, toasted almond richness and texture.
