2011 HALL Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon
Beautifully orchestrated, rich and juicy offering an opulent array of deliciously ripe and layered red and black fruits, with blackberry, currant and raspberry flavors, shaded by mocha and toasty-cedary oak nuances. Drink now through 2025.
The 2011 bottling is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon fruit selected from a spectrum of vineyards — from our Sacrashe estate in Rutherford to St. Helena to Howell Mountain. A richly opulent wine that exudes black fruit and earthy dark spices, the palate teems with soft and lingering tannins, with notes of black currant and candied violets.
Earthy Dark Spices
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.
