Hall Napa Valley Merlot 2011

External Review:

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

Great minerality on first taste,buttery, not too acidic, smooth throughout. From cheese plate to chocolate cake this wine pairs great. A bit too much sediment on second bottle, A bit less enthusiastic.

Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. When so many Merlots are trying to be knockoffs of Cabernet Sauvignon, this juicy, red-cherry scented bottling that smells and tastes of its variety is a delight to behold. It is supple in texture and smooth, fruity and rich across the palate in a style that has plenty of direct, easy-drinking charm to its credit, and its depth will make it a useful mate to dishes like pan-grilled filet mignon and brined, slow-cooked pork chops.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
