The 2015 Sacrashe Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a 12-barrel selection from this vineyard in Rutherford. Aged 26 Months in 100% New French Oak, this is an utterly fascinating wine from Hall. It begins with striking aromatics of crème de cassis, sweet pipe tobacco, graphite and mocha, which all come together to create a wonderful layered effect. The mouthfeel and intensity of this wine is superlative, as the weight and tannin structure is simply remarkable. It continues to impress as concentrated flavors of ripe dark fruits, espresso bean, sweet pipe tobacco and dark chocolate envelope the palate, making this stunning wine nearly impossible to resist. Massive and somewhat of a slumbering giant, this is a sensational wine and should continue to evolve remarkably well for years to come.
