Deep, dark and oh so balanced, this is a delightfully ripe and succulent Cabernet Sauvignon. A touch of Merlot (4%) adds the perfect highlight to the layered, fruit-forward styling with its underlayment of cocoa and leather. Those who can’t help but fall for a rich, velvety red of incredible depth will be putty in the hands of Kathryn Hall.

Wine Advocate

A barrel sample of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall is opaque purple-black colored and bursts flamboyantly from the glass, revealing notes of spice cake, potpourri, Ceylon tea and incense notes over a core of black currant cordial, black forest cake and baked blackberries with a waft of dusty soil. The palate is full, rich, spicy and seductive with a velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

Wine Spectator

Delightfully ripe, with succulent blackberry, plum and cassis flavors rolled together, carried by a well-buried graphite edge and ending with a flurry of additional fruit, while licorice and violet notes chime in. Shows the slight toothy edge of the vintage, but has enough fruit to succeed.
