Inky purple in color, this wine teems with a mosaic of aromas that forge into the lavish palate: black spice, melted black licorice, black plum jam, black currants, dark cocoa, crushed rocks, coconut, freshly turned earth and cigar box. The wine succeeds on both a hedonistic and intellectual level: balanced, complex and luxuriant, unfolding and evolving with each sip. With Sacrashe tannins as its backbone, our Katherine Hall holds 15+ years of aging potential.
"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."

"Offers bold, ripe tiers of dark berry fruit, plum, currant and blackberry flavors, with oak shadings and hints of anise, cigar box and cedar. The finish is long."
"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."
