This is a big Napa Cabernet that needs to be aged. That being said, I just had to open one to try it. Enjoyed this with a nice grilled skirt steak. Pours a viscous dark violet color. Reminds me of a nice Syrah almost. Some deep rich red hues on the edges. Aromas of currants, cassis, charred wood, mushroom dirt and blackberry jam. This hits the palate in full force. Lots of currants and cassis. In the middle, more currants and cassis, but there is plenty of charcoal flavors and blackberry undertones. Finishes just like the middle. This is a very complex, tasty, full bodied Cabernet. Lots of rich tannins coat the back of the palate. Can drink now, but should be done with food. Can age nicely for at least 8-10 years.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain reveals mountain tannins as well as plenty of concentration and depth. Black currant, cocoa, chocolate, espresso roast, lead pencil shavings, and new oak notes characterize this full-bodied, concentrated, moderately tannic 2007 Cabernet. It should hit its prime in 5ndash;6 years, and keep for 20ndash;25.

Medium ruby-red. Pungent blueberry, cassis, mineral and licorice aromas show an almost liqueur-like sweetness. Then suave and fine-grained in the mouth, with concentrated, smooth dark berry and licorice flavors. The strong, building finish features intense, bright dark fruits and sweet chewy tannins.

As for those in bottle, my favorite is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. Most of this comes from the Sacrashe Vineyard as well. A dense, full-bodied wine with lots of creme de cassis, charcoal, licorice and forest floor, the wine is opulent and already delicious and powerful. It should continue to drink well for at least 12ndash;15+ years.

The 2008 HALL Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon drives complex aromas of jammy blackberry puree, rich cassis, Asian Five-Spice and dark chocolate from the glass. The fleshy texture is both dense and opulent, the perfect platform for brawny black and briar fruit flavors that persist through the velvety, enduring finish.

The inviting deep ruby color and rich aromatics of cassis, roasted espresso bean and dark ripe plum follow through with flavors of blackberry, creme cassis and hints of graphite that linger relentlessly. Rewarding now, this wine will continue to impress for 5-10 years.

Cabernets from this Napa Valley producer have gone from strength to strength, culminating with the 2006 harvest (the wineryrsquo;s 2006 Kathryn Hall bottling appeared at No. 20 on last yearrsquo;s Top 100). This version shows Napa at its best, blending estate grapes from three distinct regions, St. Helena, Rutherford hillsides and the southern valley floor just north of Napa City. Ninety-two percent Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is aged by winemaker Steve Leveque for 20 months in French oak before bottling. 18,500 cases made.
