GIFT PACK HALL 2010 CABERNET & DUMOL 2011 CHARDONNAY

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!

WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "This is fairly rich and concentrated, with excellent depth, exhibiting a range of flavors built around dark berry, mocha, espresso, cedar and tobacco notes, with ripe, interwoven tannins. Turns graceful midpalate, ending with a persistent finish. Drink now through 2024. 30,000 cases made."

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 11 months in 35% new French oak.

This is a wine that can be enjoyed now for its citrus and grapefruit intensity or aged for five to six years to allow the natural hazelnut/truffle characters to emerge. With time in the glass a lovely beeswax/honeyed quality comes forth quich nicely offsets the wine's inherent dry, precise structure. Youthful aromas of sea shells, honeydew melon, grapefruit, lilies, and white peach develop in the glass. On the palate, lime sherbet, slate, and mineral are constantly appearing. The finish is intensely mouthwatering, as honey and lemon richness linger.
