    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 vintage of this wine was ranked #2 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2011

    The 2009 Hall Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon hits the mark brilliantly. 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.

    Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    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.

    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 wine's exotic oak component is keeping the fruit under wraps.

    Very smooth and Glycerol-like mouth feel. An hours decanting definitely helped the wine open up. Typical licorice finish, with cherry notes as well. While this is a good effort, the 2008 is better and I expect the 2010 to also be outstanding.

    A big, bold, classic Kathryn Hall. Voluptuous Rutherford dark fruit, with a lingering finish.
