Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
The Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon is the pinnacle of Hall's blending efforts each year. The exalted Sacrashe vineyard takes center stage, and is the basis of this blend. Since first working in her family’s Mendocino vineyards, Kathryn Hall dreamed of a place to showcase fine wines alongside expressive art and masterful architecture. Now, Kathryn and Craig Hall are creating an unrivaled destination in the Napa Valley - where winemaking excellence and innovation meets contemporary design to celebrate life and inspire the senses.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall is another huge wine that offers just about everything you could want from Napa Valley, including incredible opulence paired with sensational purity and elegance. Blackberries, black cherries, blueberries, violets, spring flowers and white chocolate notes all flow to a full-bodied, deep, multi-dimensional effort that has sweet, yet present, tannin and a big finish. It's going to be up with the top handful of wines in the vintage.
Wine AdvocateVery deep purple-black, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall offers up exuberant black cherries, black berries and plum preserves notes with wafts of crushed blackcurrants, red roses, tilled black soil, ground pepper and cedar chest plus a touch of espresso. Full-bodied, concentrated and delivering layer upon layer of earth and spice-laced black fruits, it has a solid line of grainy tannins and plenty of freshness to support, with a very long finish.
Wine EnthusiastEarthy, thick and densely packed in tannin, baked plum and nutmeg, this is an enormously fleshy, full-bodied wine with pronounced oak and heat. Forest floor, clove and tobacco figure into the flavor profile in savory, complex ways, accenting the bold power. This will do well in the cellar; enjoy best 2020-2025.
