Extremely rare top-of-the-line Cabernet Sauvignon from Trefethen! Limited. Halo is named for Trefethen’s 3rd generation, Hailey and Lorenzo, who grew up in the middle of their Hillspring Vineyard in the Mayacamas foothills of western Napa Valley, the source of this extraordinary red wine. The vineyard’s rocky, shallow soils, coupled with a climate protected from fog and wind, make Hillspring the perfect spot to grow exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon 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! Food Pairing: 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.
An amazing treat. This is one of the finest 2013’s I’ve had. Good for 20 years At least.

Real nice, tightly wound still but there’s a big badass wine in here.
