Hall Sauvignon Blanc, 2010
2010 HALL Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a focused reflection of its vintage and vineyards: vibrant, balanced, and fragrant. The 2010 growing season was one of the coolest on record and leaves its signature imprint by lending finesse, structure and polished minerality. The resulting wine delivers a cleansing palate with soft, ripe fruit and expressive tree blossom and mineral notes on the finish.

Kenwood Jack London Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, 2008

Project Paso Zinfandel, 2009
The nose opens up with dried fruit and concentrated blueberry aromas, with white pepper, warm Indian spices, and a touch of gaminess rounding out the background. This wine is similarly complex on the palate, with chocolate-covered cherry flavors balanced by old vine spice and a hint of sweet cigar. Earthy, medium-bodied, with a touch of minerality, this varietally correct Zinfandel gets its depth from Paso’s red soils. Light, dusty tannins frame the finish, with hints of espresso bean and sour cherry.
