Robert rated this wine as 91/100
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Boasting with flavour, this Napa Cab serves a serious punch. Loaded with depth and complexity in aromatics and on the palate. Red field berry, cassis, blackberry and a touch of oak. Long finish. Full bodied, high tannins. Aging worthy. Tasted April 2017. The 2013 vintage is tasting well at present and will continue to evolve well over the next decade. Pair with rare filet mignon or aged cheeses. 93 points Bespoke Tastings
Simon Chen rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Tasted @ California Wine Tour in Toronto 2017 - a solid napa cab, I have tried every vintage of this cab for the past 10 years and I am amazed on how consistent the quality is. Old napa cab style with just the right amount of ripe fruit and firm backbone.
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Deep, rich purple colour. Very expressive with aromas of chocolate, sweet pipe tobacco and ripe raspberry. Dense, dark fruit flavours with gentle notes of white pepper and baking spices on the finish. Firm tannins that will continue to soften with age- but definitely enjoyable now. Pair with rare beef au jus.

Natalie's Review

Hall Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Napa Valley, California, United States: Full-bodied, classic California cabernet. Dark fruit aromas on the nose and just the right amount of oak. Subtle not fruit-forward or in your face. Deep violet hue in the glass. Finishes with dark spice, graphite and smoke. Terrific tannin structure to support long-term cellar aging. Pair with rare cuts of meat. Great gift wine. Drink: 2016-2022. 273391 14.90% D 750 mL  $79.95 Score: 93/100. November 11, 2017 Top Rated Red Wine. Luscious Lamb Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
