Rutherford

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • Selected from the finest block of our rugged Sacrashe Vineyard, above the Rutherford nested appellation
  • Precision farming produces low yields to ensure perfect ripening of tannin and flavor
  • Exceptionally rich, this wine gushes with a density and opulence that cascades over length
  • It exudes enormous complexity with aromas of black fruits and freshly moved earth

Sacrashe is from HALL’s ideally located and much-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, earthy and opulent, possessing a purity of focus and pronounced power. The wine exudes dark and pure, with complex voluptuous fruit and aromas of black fruits and freshly moved earth. Exceptionally rich, the wine gushes with a density and opulence that cascades over length. Sacrashe represents a micro-selection of HALL’s best barrels from their best blocks.
