This goes out to @Ira Schwartz .
This is so full of life. Look at the presentation in the glass. Great nose of mulberries and saddle leather. Mid palate is juicy, powerful and still quite tannic. Some tertiary notes of sage are evident, but still a wonderful experience.

My mistake. The wine we chose was the straight Shiraz.

I will get this right eventually. The Club incorrectly recorded this. It is in fact a Cabernet Shiraz entirely from the Eden Valley.

Yes, @Bob McDonald this is their blend, as you know. The Signature is standout, but I’m very happy with this.

Zio Tony Ranch Chardonnay 2017

Wow this is great. Much better with 2 hours of air and closer to room temp. Lemons, a touch of marshmallow cream, some good tropical fruits, some acidity, sea salt, and some lemongrass. — 5 days ago

Cellar Series #16: Benjamin Petillant Naturel Cider

Eden Benjamin. This one really needs to be closer to room temperature to really explode in flavor. Tons of sweet apple smell but man is this tart. Great flowers, minerals, a bit of funk. Really lemon and apples though. — 14 days ago

Sacrashe Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Drinking this wine makes me think about doing barrel tastings in a wine cave. Beautifully perfumed with notes of rose petals, cinnamon and black fruit. Dark ruby colored. Wonderfully integrated with great flavors of dark cherries, dark chocolate, licorice and white pepper. We really enjoyed the spiciness of this wine. Tannins were silky smooth and sweet. The finish again took me to a wine cave full of Cabernet Sauvignon! An outstanding wine that paired great with filet mignon and lobster tails tonight at home. — 11 days ago

Ellie's Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

It was the end of the day when we arrived at Hall & I was burnt out writing detailed notes. So, I’m just going give you my notations.

I liked the Ellie’s. More than that, I like its style and the fact it drank so well with only two years in bottle. Ellie’s showed nice softness and integration. Similar wire to wire and simply delicious. You can drink it now and for the next 7-8 years. 2016 such a good Napa vintage & Hall did well.

Once I arrived at Hall, I remembered why I had left it to the back of my visit list for so long. It’s not that the wines aren’t good...they are and it’s a beautiful setting, it’s just a bit of a tasting factory.

Terra Secca Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Genius cab from the Hall team. The nose is like walking into a floral shop. Loads of fruit and just a bit of spice. I've been a fan of what Hall is doing and this one delivers in spades. 2014 is ripe for the drinking. — 18 days ago

Exzellenz Sacrashe Vineyard Red Wine 2010

This was my contribution for a 10-yr retrospective of Napa cab with a local group. All wines (16 of them) were tasted blind. Others of note were Cardinale, Larkmead, Bryant Family, Vineyard 29, Corra and Jacquelyn To-Kalon.

My first experience with this wine, and when I acquired it, I wasn’t aware it was a 100 pointer. I’ve had many Hall wines but this is definitely their most structured wine. It’s fruit forward but in no way close to their other offerings. At 100% cab, it drinks like it. I let this breathe from bottle for about 2hrs before it was thrown in a decanter for another 2-3hrs and consumed. I had a splash at pop and it was crazy coiled, underripe and dusty. When I came back to it later (albeit blind, so I’m looking at my notes), it sported dark fruit on both the nose and the palate. Dark cocoa dipped black cherries, ripe blueberries and blackberries, as well as cassis and espresso aromatically. There was also a bit of a lavender/floral note that gave it a unique quality. On the palate, it eventually smoothed out beautifully, but was powerful the entire time. Dense and rich with added notes of fig, baking spices, and cocoa dusted fruits. One of those wines that makes you think overpowering, but then dials it down to silk on the finish. I think this is just entering a prime drinking window. Bummer I don’t have more.
