Trefethen HāLo 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oak Knoll|
A true expression of our terroir, one can literally taste the flavors of our Hillspring vineyard in every sip of HāLo. Your nose is enchanted with botanical aromas of the oak forest which surrounds the vines as perfumed scents of earth, bay leaf, tobacco, and dark fruit dance in the glass. The palate is rich with great structure and complex flavors of cherry, plum, and a long, spicy finish of black pepper, nutmeg, and thyme. To enjoy every nuance of this sumptuous wine, decant before serving. Further rewards await those who have the patience to cellar a few bottles for future enjoyment. Salud! HāLo should be reserved for the finest cuts of full-flavored beef, lamb, and game. Add a mushroom or reduced wine sauce and your palate will be singing with pleasure. Thyme, black pepper and rosemary are also lovely complements.
