98 Points - International Wine Report

Sacrashe Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from its namesake vineyard, home to HALL’s first 100 point wine. Sacrashe vineyard, hidden atop the eastern ridge of the Vaca mountain range in Rutherford, is noteworthy for its extremely limiting volcanic tuff soils and gentle sloping aspects. This vineyard yields fruit that is rich, dense, earthy and opulent, possessing a purity of focus and pronounced power. The wine exudes dark and pure, voluptuous fruit.

Appellation: Napa Valley
Varietals: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Barrel Aging: 26 Months in 100% New French Oak
Winemaker: Steve Leveque

“Very deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Sacrashe Vineyard features gregarious scents of fresh red and black currants, black cherries and crushed plums with hints of chocolate mint, fragrant soil and black tea. Full-bodied, concentrated and packed with opulent red and black fruit layers, it has a very seductive frame of plush yet firm and oh-so-ripe tannins, with bags of freshness coming through on the very long finish.” - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

“The nose takes on sweet pipe tobacco, creme de cassis, graphite and mocha flavors that all create a wonderful layered effect. The mouthfeel and intensity of this wine is superlative. The fruit weight and tannins structure of the wine really impresses with gobs of dark fruits like blackberry compote, cassis, and also yielding espresso bean, sweet pipe tobacco, and dark chocolate fudge flavors.” - Owen Bargreen

“Hall's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Sacrashe Vineyard is explosive and dense in the glass, with tons of super-ripe, red-toned fruit, menthol and licorice. I am not surprised winemaker Steve Leveque has decided to give the 2015 a few more months in barrel. Today, the Sacrashe is deep and concentrated, but also a bit untamed in its overall feel.” - Antonio Galloni
