Winemaker's Notes

#20 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The HALL "Kathryn Hall" Cabernet Sauvignon stands as the flagship Cabernet Sauvignon in our collection. The 2006 vintage was sourced predominately from our Sacrashe Vineyard and captures the deep, dusty essence of this legendary Rutherford hilltop site. We harvested on an early October morning, carrying the prize fruit to our HALL Rutherford winery where it was gravity-fed into our signature fermentation tanks. Native yeast, malolactic fermentations and unfiltered bottling has encouraged a highly nuanced wine with special character and graceful evolution both in the glass and in the cellar.

Dense inky-purple to the core, this wine delivers a stunning nose of effusive, high-toned exotic fruits, truffle, blackberry jam and crushed stone minerality. On the palate, an empyreal richness and densely sweet texture seems to go on forever. Proper cellaring will assure 10-15 years of enjoyment.

Critical Acclaim

" A big, dense, concentrated wine, with wonderful aromas marked by chewy tannins, yet the core currant and blackberry flavors and savory herb and earth nuances provide a solid foundation. Best from 2010 through 2016."
96 Points

"Outstanding for its purity, and the incredibly fine tannins, not to mention the compelling flavors. Black and red cherries, currants, cola, mushrooms, cedar, anise and spice flavors mingle into a long, rich finish. So balanced and elegant. Made from 95% Sacrashe Vineyard fruit, in the Rutherford AVA."
95 Points

"Intense black-garnet hue. Attractive, fruit-driven bouquet emitting fresh black cherry and blueberry with hints of flint, charcoal and clove. Creamy black cherry fruit imbued with youthful yet even tannins and fresh acidity. A stalwart Napa Cab displaying excellent length and purity of fruit."
95 Points

"Medium to full-bodied with a more aggressive structure [than the 2005] as well as a more noticeable astringency to the tannins, but with the necessary depth of fruit and concentration for balance."
90 Points

The Hall cab to me feels and tastes just perfect... almost buttery... such a fantastic mouth feel... and the finish leaves you partially speechless before your next sip. I found Hall to be something I'd be proud to give as a gift... and I'd hope it would be the wine I'd receive as one!! Bravo Kathryn Hall!!

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...
