2017 HALL Exzellenz Cabernet Sauvignon Bottle Shot2017 HALL Exzellenz Cabernet Sauvignon Bottle Shot

Deep ruby red, the 2017 Exzellenz exhibits tightly wound aromas that take time to open. Deep and intense layers of black cherry, earth, freshly ground coffee, warm baking spice. The palate is powerful and energetic - full of inky dark fruits, chocolate, and leather. The dense frame of tannin is supported by a supple and full mid-palate that leads into a very lengthy, slightly dusty finish.

  • Black Cherry
  • Ground Coffee
  • Warm Baking Spice
  • Chocolate

The goal here is dark black fruit, power, chewy tannin, and a focused palate. Our Sacrashe estate vineyard is 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, earthy, and opulent. It possesses a pronounced power.

Vintage NotesOur 2017 harvest wrapped up early fall following summer heat spurts and a growing season that saw significant rain throughout the state, ending a five-year drought. The season began with rainfall that refilled reservoirs and replenished soils. Harvest began early ata normal pace, and then progressed rapidly during a heat wave in late August and early September. Temperatures cooled in mid-September, slowing the harvest pace and allowing grapes to ripen gradually. This is a strong quality vintage.
