Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, under the expert guidance of winemaker Megan Gunderson, represents the zenith of wine artistry at Hall. This vintage, a masterful blend primarily sourced from the revered Sacrashe Vineyard, embodies the essence of Napa Valley’s renowned terroir.

This exquisite wine presents a deep, dark ruby hue, signifying its richness and depth.

The aroma of Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon is an intricate tapestry woven with concentrated blackberry and freshly turned earth, elegantly harmonized with a whisper of warm, spicy oak. These elements collectively produce a bouquet that is as inviting as it is complex.

On the palate, the wine is fruit-forward, revealing layers of black fruit, nutmeg, cassis, and an intriguing brooding earthiness. The integration of rich cocoa and supple leather notes adds to its sophistication. The wine boasts a mouth-coating richness, thanks to the Sacrashe Vineyard’s contribution, characterized by dark earthy cassis flavors and densely packed tannins. These elements come together to form a wine of unparalleled balance, symmetry, and finesse, with a voluptuousness and opulence that have become hallmarks of Kathryn Hall vineyards.

The 2017 harvest marked the end of a five-year drought, with significant rainfall replenishing soils and reservoirs. Despite the challenges posed by summer heat spurts, the season allowed the grapes to ripen gradually, culminating in a vintage of exceptional quality.

The Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 has garnered acclaim from wine critics. Wine Spectator awarded it 92 points, praising its ripe blackberry, plum, and cassis flavors, complemented by a graphite edge and licorice and violet notes, culminating in a fruit-filled finish. The vintage’s slight toothy edge is well-balanced by its fruit richness. 6,445 cases are produced for this vintage.

Wine Advocate, giving it 96 points, lauds its opulent purple-black color and flamboyant burst of spice cake, potpourri, Ceylon tea, and incense notes. Underneath lies a core of black currant cordial, black forest cake, and baked blackberries, finishing with a touch of dusty soil. The palate is rich, spicy, and seductive with a velvety texture and seamless freshness, culminating in a long, perfumed finish.

In summary, Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, with its careful blending and exceptional vineyard sources, offers a luxurious experience that encapsulates the spirit of Napa Valley. Its complexity, balance, and exquisite flavor profile make it not just a wine, but a journey through the art and science of winemaking.

  1. WS

    Delightfully ripe, with succulent blackberry, plum and cassis flavors rolled together, carried by a well-buried graphite edge and ending with a flurry of additional fruit, while licorice and violet notes chime in. Shows the slight toothy edge of the vintage, but has enough fruit to succeed.

  2. WA

    A barrel sample of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall is opaque purple-black colored and bursts flamboyantly from the glass, revealing notes of spice cake, potpourri, Ceylon tea and incense notes over a core of black currant cordial, black forest cake and baked blackberries with a waft of dusty soil. The palate is full, rich, spicy and seductive with a velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long and perfumed.
