Hall Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Kathryn Hall 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

98 points International Wine Report: ...amongst the most compelling releases of this bottling that I have ever tasted. While its power is evident, the balance and purity of fruit is simply amazing, as it delivers deep, concentrated flavors of crème de cassis, mocha, tar, cigar box and roasted coffee which continue effortlessly through the finish. Voluptuous and seamless, this stunning Cabernet is just about impossible to resist now, however expect this to evolve gracefully over the next decade and beyond.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall is one of the more subdued wines in this lineup. The blend includes 14% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec, which probably accounts for much of the wine’s personality. Sweet red cherries, flowers and spices are some of the nuances that emerge from this silky, polished Cabernet Sauvignon. As outstanding as this is, I don’t get the visceral thrill of the best wines here. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2019.

This is a best of barrels blend from Hall’s various vineyards, including the famous Sacrashe. The wine itself is lovely. It has a firm structure thanks to dusty tannins and a dry minerality, while bright acidity makes the cherry, blackberry, blueberry, cassis and dark chocolate fruit sing. Drink now and through 2014.

Good saturated ruby-red. Superripe aromas of dark fruits, coffee and mocha. Sweet and large-scaled if a bit unrefined, with a smooth texture and considerable alcoholic power to the chocolatey fruit. Plenty of ripeness and depth here but today the wineandrsquo;s exotic oak component is keeping the fruit under wraps.

Ultrarich and multiflavored, with a range of deep, baked berry notes. Intense and focused, balanced and persistent, this ends with touches of red and black licorice and subtle, grainy earth accents and tannins. Drink now through 2022..
