Hall

Where winemaking excellence meets contemporary design

Hall Wines encompasses a total of 500 acres of vines on estate vineyards in St. Helena, Rutherford, Pope Valley, Atlas Peak as well as in the Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. Since 2003, Craig Hall and Kathryn Walt Hall have showcased state-of-the-art Napa Valley viticulture, winemaking, architecture and hospitality. Hailing from Texas, Craig Hall has been a successful entrepreneur, venture capitalist and real estate developer. Kathryn Walt Hall grew up in Mendocino, where her family tended vineyards, supplying grapes to several wineries in the region. After a career in law as well as serving as United States Ambassador to Austria, she and Craig returned to California, determined to make a mark in the Napa Valley wine industry. Hall’s estate vineyards offer a rich palette of valley floor and high-elevation terroirs and microclimates from which to craft a range of appellation and single-vineyard wines and proprietary blends. The wines are based mainly on the Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc and are produced in two state-of-the-art wineries. HALL St. Helena is the site of one of the Napa Valley’s earliest wineries built in 1885. The old “ghost winery” building is being restored as a testament to the history of Napa winemaking. It stands next to Hall’s new facility, where the largest share of Hall wines are produced. HALL Rutherford is a gravity flow winery that features stunning design, artisanship as well as artworks the Halls have collected. It is designed specifically for the production of small-lot wine, such as reserve bottlings or proprietary blends. Though Hall is relatively new to the Napa Valley, its team of winemakers, vineyard managers and consultants are dedicated to realizing the visions of the founders. The stellar scores the wines have received show that effort is paying off.

2016 Hall Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc (375ml)

2016 Hall Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc (375ml)

Because Napa Valley wine production is so dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, which may require years of aging in barrel and bottle, a wine like Hall’s Sauvignon Blanc provides an early peek into the vintage. While the winter’s wet “El Niño” brought some relief to drought-parched vineyards, the harvest was yet again early, and yields remained low. On the other hand, cooler-than-average temperatures in the summer allowed Sauvignon Blanc to develop crisp flavors and alluring aromatics. Pale yellow with a hint of green, this wine is well-bodied, clean and fresh, delivering tropical fruit flavors with a whiff of freshly cut grass. No excuses or special occasions are necessary to open this handy 375 ml bottling, so make sure you have plenty on hand to last the summer!

2014 Hall Napa Valley Merlot (375ml)

By sourcing fruit from the winery’s estate as well as growers up and down the Napa Valley, Hall Winery has crafted a dark, lush, weighty and distinctive wine that Merlot lovers can savor for years to come. Like the previous year, 2014 was a stellar Napa Valley vintage that produced aromatically expressive, rich and energetic red wines. Notes of spice, chocolate and toasty oak accent the cherry and raspberry, and refreshing acidity and firm tannins suggest potential for aging. This Merlot would pair well juicy meat dishes, such as burgers, braised pork or chicken, or even Chinese-style roast duck. The 375 ml bottle makes it easier to enjoy more than one type of wine with a meal.

2016 Hall Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

2016 Hall Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

As a cool aperitif or an accompaniment to a light meal, this Sauvignon Blanc is ripe and refreshing. In 2016, the multi-year drought was brought to an end by significant winter rains, and the growing season saw moderate temperatures without any heat spikes. The quality and concentration of Sauvignon Blanc fruit was excellent and the wine is aromatic and crisp. By blending fruit sourced from vineyards located in cooler parts of the Napa Valley and by fermenting and aging in stainless steel, the winemaker has crafted a wine that entices the palate with pure fruit, vibrance and refreshing acidity. Try this wine with sashimi, Greek salad or fried calamari.
