Our 2020 Robert Hall Merlot has aromas of ripe black cherry, dried herbs, and spice. The wine is full-bodied with rich concentrated fruit flavors and fine-grained tannins on the finish.
There are vineyard sites in Paso Robles that are very well suited to Merlot. Moderate temperatures, maritime influence and clay soils all help contribute to a robust Merlot. This wine is aged in French and Eastern European Oak for 18 months.

Vintage 2020 began with an encouraging mild start and lower than average rainfall. Bud break and bloom were a couple weeks later than average, setting the growing season back slightly. Temperatures rose significantly in August, shortening the seasonal delay. Heat waves plagued the season from August to October, with temperatures over 110°F for extended periods of time. Harvest began on August 17th, with white wines showing great quality despite the heat. At the end of one of the warmest vintages in Paso, we have found wine flavors and quality to be very good with excellent concentration.
