Hall Kathryn Hall Cabernet 2010
Three and a half glasses
Dark purple in the glass. Nose of dark berries, cocoa, and loam. Berry, oak, and leather initially on the palate, overwhlemed by astringency. Decanted for one hour, more cocoa and tobacco comes through but still tannic. Really smooths out on the second day, but still a little unbalanced toward the tannins. Will probably lay the next bottle down for at least a year, but the second night's drinking reveals potential in this one a few years (or more) down the road.
Two and a half glasses

External Reviews for Hall Kathryn Hall Cabernet
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon is another big, beautifully pure, multidimensional, textured and impressive effort revealing lots of creme de cassis and spring flowers, full body and long, sweet tannins. Again, brilliant winemaking has turned out a terrific 2010 that should evolve for two decades or more. Readers should not miss this portfolio of compelling 2010s. Kudos to former Ambassador to Austria, Kathryn Hall.
Good bright medium ruby. Sexy high-toned aromas of cassis, licorice, dark chocolate and minerals. Sweet, suave and pliant, offering a captivating combination of generosity of texture and underlying power. Broader than the Jack's Masterpiece but less sweet in the early going, showing a firm acid/tannin underpinning. Finishes with substantial dusty, ripe, seamless tannins and a chocolatey quality.
A flamboyant wine, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall flows across the palate with the essence of raspberry jam, spices, licorice, flowers and crushed rocks. This voluptuous, totally sexy Cabernet Sauvignon captivates all the senses with its sumptuous fruit and fabulous overall balance. The style is rich and opulent but also beautifully balanced at the same time. With time in the glass, the wine fleshes out a bit more, showing its considerable power and intensity. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2025.
Offers bold, ripe, opulent tiers of dark berry fruit, plum, currant and blackberry flavors, with pretty oak shadings and hints of anise, cigar box and cedar. The finish is long and persistent. Drink now through 2026.
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 ... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2009 Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2009 Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Deep, rich and concentrated, the wine boasts black jammy fruits, cassis, freshly plowed earth and dark chocolate. The opulence and massive texture is undeniable while the glycerol-like body and silky tannins glide through an expansive, delectable finish. The wine will reward 10-15 years of cellaring, but it would be regrettable not to try a bottle at release.
