It is Sunday evening and the first wine we have opened is the 2012 Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This was a gift from one of my life long friends that is here in Palm Springs.

The nose has notes of black fruit, black cherry, blackberry, cassis, oak and a mineral note although a bit on the weak side.

On the palate the black fruit is prominent with black cherry, blackberry, some licorice, vanilla, smoky oak and earth notes.

The wine is medium to full bodied with medium acidity, medium smooth tannins, a very drinkable wine right now.

The weekend is at an end and the workweek is upon us. Have a great week and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷

This afternoon we are enjoying a nice Cabernet from Kathryn Hall. Nose is very expressive with notes of blackberry jam, currant, licorice and a nice smokey oak. On the palate gives notes of black cherry, blackberry, currant, black pepper and a slight spice. Has a medium acidity, medium tannins with a good round mouth feel with a long pleasing finish.

Great wine at a great price. Not a big fan of their higher end labels but this consistently over delivers for the scratch.

No frills, but I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised. You can taste their better wines in there. Solid.
