2019 HALL Kathryn Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon - Sacrashe & Vineyard Partners
(Barrel Score) "Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts on the scene with bright, cheery, expressive notes of kirsch, black raspberries, blackcurrant pastilles and violets, plus suggestions of unsmoked cigars, bouquet garni and fragrant earth. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers wonderful freshness with youthful, crunchy red and black fruit layers and finely grained tannins, finishing on a lingering minerally note."
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 appellations, 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.
