Winemaker's Notes:

#2 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

The nearly opaque purple-black color of this wine hints at its depth and power. Rife with aromas of violets, cocoa powder, stewed raspberries, blackberry nectar, and roasted herbs; the wine is luscious and dense with a sweet, focused core. Dark cherries, blackberry preserves, black spice and roasted nut flavors intermingle across a seemingly endless finish. This vintage of Hall "Kathryn Hall" Cabernet Sauvignon will continue to improve over 15 or more years of cellaring.

Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot
