    November 28, 2013 - Excellent single vineyard cab. Opened up nicely after being in the glass for ab hour or so. Has life ahead and will improve. Suggest decanting for at least an hour.

    September 2, 2013 - Slow-O 1 hr, served non-blind. My impression is the same as iamandyc's. Nothing remarkable here, but it was made even more obvious by the fact that it followed 2000 Opus One and 2000 Viader. Not something I would seek out.

    June 13, 2013 - This is not your typical jammy CA Cab fruitbomb, it reminds me more of a left bank Bordeaux (in spite of being close to 95% cabernet sauvignon). The tannins are massive, I'd give this a min of 5 years before breaking into these. At this price point it's not bad to pick up 3 bottles and see what happens. Nice layers of all the classic darkfruits are here, nice structure; everything's here to make this a perfectly enjoyable wine in a few years.

    June 4, 2013 - Not the best showing wine, certainly for the price, but the artwork on the bottle is nice. Purple, nose has a lot of sulfur and a merlot-like character. Tannins a bit harsh and grape stemmy, but has some structure that could hold up with longer time. Unfortunately, for such a young wine, the cork was nearly leaking and I doubt it would have held up for four more years.

    May 30, 2013 - This one was better than the other two. Decanted for 2 hours. Not a good effort from Hall Winery. I wonder if they are trying to do too many wines. Why not do just a few and do them great?
