2012 HALL "Exzellenz" Sacrashe Vineyard Red Wine
The HALL “Exzellenz” is created expressly to showcase our prized Sacrashe estate vineyard, hidden atop the eastern ridge of the Vaca mountain range in Rutherford. With extremely limiting volcanic tuff soils and gentle sloping aspects, this vineyard yields fruit that is always rich, dense, ear thy, and opulent, possessing a purity of focus and pronounced power.

|Vintage Notes||"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Exzellenz, which comes from their Sacrashe Vineyard in Ruther ford seems more tightly knit than the Cabernet Sauvignon Kathr yn Hall. Again, it seems like this fruit source of their s in Rutherford tends to produce wines that need time in bottle. The overwhelming, extravagant, richness is certainly present, as is the vintage personality of opulence, ripeness and fabulous purity and texture. This dense purple wine is loaded, much like all its siblings, but more backward and a longer-term prospect. Forget it for five years and drink it over the next 25."|
