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.
"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."
The Wine Advocate
"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."
"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."
