2010 Hall "Exzellenz" 9L

Wine Advocate 100pts!!! "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Exzellenz Sacrashe Vineyard appears to be the deepest colored wine of this group. It reveals a pungent, penetrating, haunting bouquet of black and blue fruits as well as spring flowers. Exceptionally rich with perfect balance, a multidimensional skyscraper-like texture, but no heaviness, this is a tour de force in great winemaking. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. This epic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon should evolve over the next 25 years. "


Wine Enthusiast 95pts: "Made from 100% Cab, the grapes once again show what the vineyard, in the hills east of the Silverado Trail, can do. The French oak was 90% new, which would swamp a lesser wine, but not this one. It’s rich, full and concentrated, with excellent structure and balance. Drink now, after careful decanting, and through 2020."

Winemaker's Notes: "The 2010 Exzellenz is deep, dark purple in color with a heady perfume of dark wild berry, dark cherry, espresso, fresh herbs, tilled earth, and dark chocolate. This wine is both massive and eloquent on the palate with rich, lengthy tannins that frame a graceful core of deep dark fruit and toasted spice flavors. The 2010 "Exzellenz" requires patience as it will evolve and unveil its optimal beauty over the course of the next two decades."
