Winemaker's Notes

Kathryn Hall, our signature Cabernet Sauvignon, showcases the choicest fruit from our finest estate vineyards blocks and extraordinary mountain fruit from our select vineyard partners. A beautiful combination of varietals and terroir has transcended into a symphonic cuvee.

An extraordinary bouquet of briar fruit, toasty oak, and baking spice lure you to a palate of dense, powerful fruit and massive structure. The wine is distinctively smooth. Fine-grained tannins crescendo through the mid-palate and settle nicely into a long, memorable finish of berry pie flavors and a voluptuous coating mouthfeel. Approachable in its youth, this wine will continue to evolve with 10 - 15 years of cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (primarily estate fruit) reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as sweet, tarry, black currant, and chocolate notes with hints of wood smoke and spice box... It should drink beautifully for 15 or more years."
92 Points

"Firmly tannic and dry, this Cabernet, which was blended with a little Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, is one for the cellar. The tannins are tough and astringent, but when they melt away over the next decade or so, they’ll leave behind sweet currants, cedar and violets."
92 Points

"Intense garnet hue with a fuchsia rim. Blueberry, new oak and vanilla aromas. Elegant cherry fruit followed by fine-grain tannins and oak notes. Lengthy, ripe finish showing an accessible, soft side in its youth."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
