Winemaker's Notes

The Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon is widely recognized as Hall's premier estate cuvee. This wine showcases the legendary Sacrashe vineyard's distinctive hillside terroir; it is a massive, well structured wine born of low yielding vines, meticulous cultivation and exacting harvesting practices.

The 2003 Kathryn Hall displays an array of complex aromas of fruit, oak and terroir. Initially, the wine displays sweet fruit aromas of cassis, plum, and blackberry. However, as the aromas linger, one can discover subtle notes of nutmeg, vanilla, toasted pecans and chocolate express themselves beautifully. The flavors are full-bodied and lush, with the round, rich tannin structure that reflects its mountain-grown origins. This wine is drinking beautifully right now, but for those who prefer to defer their gratification, the 2003 will continue to evolve in complexity and character over the next 3-10 years.

93 POINTS. "What a roll this winery has been on the last several vintages. The '03 is huge, showing masses of forward, classic Cabernet fruit. Just erupts with dark berry-cherry, plum boysenberry and coffee flavors with rich, butterscotchy, gingersnap cookie note... Best 2009-2015." Cellar Selection.

Silky feel, big balanced fruit and oak. Long finish, one to savor. Complex layers of fruit, spice and cocoa. I don't even pair it with food because I don't want anything to get in the way of the wine.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
