Ensconced by 100-year old oaks, manzanita, and pines, the Sacrashe vineyard is composed of distinctive volcanic ash soils (tuff). An undulating topography creates numerous microclimates and slope grades. The Rutherford hilltop terroir creates difficult growing conditions and limits the vigor and yield of each vine to not more than 3 tons per acre. HALL’s small-vine farming practices further limit the yield such that each vine produces less than 4 pounds of fruit each year.
Rutherford berries are small and concentrated with intense flavors and tannin. The wines are exceptionally rich, expansive, and massively structured. The concentrated fruit maintains a focused clarity and the fine-grained tannin creates a balanced frame.
