Analysis

In the late 70s Robert Hall visited France's Rhône Valley and was captivated by the wines, the lifestyle, and the pairing of wine and food. In the following decade he visited California's wine growing regions learning their unique attributes while searching for the ideal spot to grow Rhône varietals. In the early 90s Robert and Margaret Hall discovered that Paso Robles was the perfect place for their future winery. Their "Home Ranch" was acquired in 1995 followed soon by additional vineyards. Since then Robert Hall Winery has become a favorite among wine lovers. 90 points out of 100.

How to Enjoy

This wine needs nothing but a glass while it's great with semi-soft cheeses and cold chicken salad.
