Following three critically acclaimed vintages of Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Hall is delighted to release the 2009 Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage is brimming with aromas of cassis and blackberry pie and expresses aromas of black fruit, white chocolate and toasted almonds. Round and soft on the palate, opulent flavors of dark bing cherry, jam, and caramel lead to a velvety finish. Expect this wine to age gracefully over the next 10+ years.
Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec, and 1% Cabernet Franc
For the money this is a good Cab!

Tried this recently and it was better than the very good 2008 vintage. Nice nose with fruity/earthy complex flavor - silky mouth feel. I bet it will be even better in a couple of years. I only give it a 4 rather than a 5 because their Kathryn Hall cab, an awesome wine, is what I'm comparing it to. This wine is what the Alexander Valley Silver Oak used to be.

Was just so so. I am going to let them age a few years before tasting again.
