Reviews and Ratings

Alana L rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot aged for 26 months in 80% new French oak, the 2016 Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon is the pinnacle of the wineries blending efforts each year (and packs an impressive 16.1% abv and price point). Deep ruby in color, with floral (violet shines through here) and clear saline notes followed by red fruit, dark chocolate, black tea, tar, molasses and spice. Powerful, full-bodied, rich, layered and complex it packs a punch yet stays super smooth, velvety, round, structured and balanced.

Pair with a special occasion and a Tomahawk steak – 97 Points (Wine Advocate), 96 Points (Wine Spectator) are just a few of the accolades this wine has received.

In Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon is often called the King of Grapes, accounting for more than 50% of the region’s planted acreage grown in all 16 sub regions. To many, Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are almost synonymous.

Tasted as part of the 'California Wine Month: Napa Valley’s King of Grapes - Cabernet Sauvignon’, a panel discussion and tasting to explore the quality, personality, versatility and diversity of the region’s signature grape, bringing together some of its most celebrated winemakers to discuss their insights and experience with the variety; moderated by Master Sommelier and speaker Andrea Robinson and California Wines Canada and featuring panelists Marcus Notaro, Winemaker Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars; Michael Scholz, Winemaker, St. Supery and Priyanka French, Winemaker, Signorello Estates.

Cheers!
