Winemaker's Notes:

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.
