Kathryn Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Winemaker Notes :
The 2016 Kathryn Hall is deep ruby in color with enticing aromas of cassis, violets, cacao, anise and black tea. This powerful vintage sets the stage for a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with layered notes of dark plum, ripe blackberry, anise, pine needle and violet. The firm tannins are well integrated and provide a structured backbone to this opulent wine.
Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall sashays out of the glass with beguiling notions of warm black and red currants, fresh blackberries, black raspberries and boysenberries with touches of rose hip tea, forest floor, pencil shavings and violets. Full-bodied with a taut foundation of firm, fine-grained tannins and bags of freshness, it has layer upon layer of perfumed black and red fruits, finishing long and fragrant.
A beauty, with creamed plum, braised fig and melted black licorice notes that are long and deep, gliding through effortlessly and ending with a swath of espresso, loam and smoldering tobacco details. Hard to resist now, but will cruise in the cellar. Best from 2021 through 2035.
Loads of blue fruits, kirsch liqueur, crushed violets, spring flowers, and orange blossom notes emerge from the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall. This exotic, sexy 2016 has a light, elegant texture, nicely integrated acidity, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. It's another wine that blends power and elegance beautifully. Drink bottles over the coming 20-25 years.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall is a rich, dense wine. Dark red and purplish berry fruit, spice, lavender and new leather all flesh out in an ample, creamy Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with tremendous textural resonance. This is one of the more expressive wines in the range.
Perfumed in violet and lavender, this rich, lush wine has 10% Merlot and is made from several vineyards, including the producer's stellar Sacrashe. Lengths of red cherry, clove and earthy herbaceouness combine well around plush, opulent layers of tannin and toasted oak.
