Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 vintage of this wine was ranked #2 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2011

The 2009 Hall Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon hits the mark brilliantly. Deep, rich and concentrated, the wine boasts black jammy fruits, cassis, freshly plowed earth and dark chocolate. The opulence and massive texture is undeniable while the glycerol-like body and silky tannins glide through an expansive, delectable finish. The wine will reward 10-15 years of cellaring, but it would be regrettable not to try a bottle at release.

Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
