St Helena is one of the Napa Valley’s top subregions, located in the shadow of the 1325m Mount Saint Helena, from which the small town takes its name. St Helena wines are recognized by rich red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. These are made by some of California’s most notable names, including Beringer, Joseph Phelps, Turley, Duckhorn Vineyards and Hall Wines.
I recently tasted Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon 2014. This is a fantastic wine with full-bodied power, stunning purity and long finish aromas of beautiful licorice, chocolate, and espresso notes.
The Halls purchased the winery in St. Helena. Now their estate vineyards contain more than 500 acres of classic Bordeaux varietals; The couple has maintained a strong commitment to the environment and to cutting-edge technology to yield the highest quality grapes.
Through years of hard work, passion and unstoppable spirit, they ultimately built the HALL Wines and WALT Wines. Not only did the wines take off, but they also became serious contenders in the wine world.
