In every vintage, there are a few wines that rise above. In 2012, Hall decided to separate a few barrels of these rare wines to bottle individually, creating the Platinum Collection. Each of these wines evokes a clear connection to the valley’s natural splendor. The wine is simultaneously elegant, dense and inviting—conveying a clear glimpse into the soil, slopes and climate from which it came.
Hall has created a platinum club for these wines specifically, an elusive, tiny club of elite members. I managed to snag a single trio from the club in the crazy good 2013 vintage in Napa.
The three wines featured are all Hall’s top cabs, their Rainin Vineyard Diamond Mountain Cab, their “Bishop” Cabernet and the “Sacrashe Vineyard” Rutherford Cabernet. Always scored big, in 2013 it was a whole other story including a perfect 100-point score from Parker himself. Here are all the 2013 scores for this amazing trio:
Hall ‘The Bishop’ Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 (WE-96, RP-95)
Hall “Sacrashe Vineyard” Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 ( JD-98)
Hall “Rainin Vineyard” Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 ( RP-100)
