$44.99

Kathryn and Craig Hall are making some of Napa Valley's best Cabernets in their state-of-the-art winery amid the legendary Sacrashe Vineyard in the hills of Rutherford.   Get the new vintage before it sells out.92 Points Wine Spectator:  "Fairly rich and concentrated, with excellent depth and a range of flavor built around dark berry, mocha, espresso, cedar and tobacco notes, turning graceful midpalate and ending with a per sistent finish. Offers ripe, interwoven tannins. Drink now through 2024." previous vintage 95 Points Robert Parker:  "The Cabernet Sauvignon is another huge wine. Despite its size, it possesses silky tannins and great concentration of fruit. Blackberries, blueberries, spices and suave tannins provide the backdrop for this extroverted, striking Cabernet Sauvignon. In a decidedly opulent style, with hints of sweetness on the finish, this is yet another intriguing wine. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030... ...This is a thrilling set of wines from Hall. The estate favors a rich, extroverted style, yet all of these wines have distinct personalities and tons of sheer character. Meticulous viticulture followed by native yeast fermentations, slow, natural malos and minimal rackings are at the heart of the approach at Hall. The wines are aged in French oak (mostly Taransaud, 40-90% new) and are bottled with no fining or filtration. Readers who appreciate the more opulent side of Napa Valley will find much to admire here. Simply put, I was blown away by what I tasted. As outstanding as the 2009s are, there is a very good chance the 2010s will turn out to be even better."

Well balanced wine with lots of structure and fruit... a bit alcoholic thought

Good structure with notes of graphite, very good dark fruit. Tanins softened after two hours of decanting. Very alcoholic though at 14.9% ABV.
