Hall Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Bergfeld 2006
Home to our St. Helena winery, the HALL "Bergfeld" Cabernet Sauvignon is born of an historic site. It was originally planted in 1859 by the pioneering winegrower Robert Bergfeld who also owned our historic winery from 1894 to 1910. The vineyard is planted in free-draining soils, atop the bed where Sulfur Creek once flowed. Loose gravel and river rock still remain and are integrated in the multifarious soils around the vines.
Food Pairings for Hall Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Bergfeld
Deeply hued, our 2006 “Bergfeld” brims with voluminous aromas of jammy blackberry, roasted espresso, fennel, and black currant. The sweet mid-palate overflows with ripened plum and cassis, concluding with a warm, spicy oak finish. Such a massively structured wine begged additional aging in our cellar. Upon release it is broad and muscular and is best decanted. The 2006 “Bergfeld” will gain richness and complexity over the next 10 - 12 years.
