2014 HALL Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon - Vineyard Partners
"The 2014 is amongst the most compelling releases of this bottling that I have ever tasted. While its power is evident, the balance and purity of fruit is simply amazing..."
Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon exudes warmth and allure. Enticing aromas of sweet dark plum, cocoa powder, and dusty earth are laced with a subtle note of dried mountain sage. The exquisitely seamless, supple, and opulent palate features decadent dark fruit, a savory umami character and sweet, rich, lengthy tannins on the finish. The layers of this powerful wine will unfold beautifully over time.
Dried Mountain Sage
The Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon is the pinnacle of our blending efforts each year. The exalted Sacrashe vineyard takes center stage, and is the basis of this blend. The vineyard contributes the mouth-coating richness and complexity, offering deep, dark earthy cassis flavors and powerfully dense tannins. From there, we search out complementary vineyards, usually from the most regarded mountain appellation, to create balance, symmetry and finesse in the wine. Lastly, we introduce vineyards with profound depth and decadence to heighten the voluptuousness and opulence that have become a hallmark character of our flagship wine.
