Product was provided for free however the review is my honest opinion.

I recently participated in another Cellar Pass TV Live show.  This show was a Wine Country Fashion Show & Wine tasting and though I’m not a huge fashion fan, I could see the ladies were having a great time.  With winter around the corner we have to start exchanging our summer clothes for the fall winter wardrobe.  I cannot believe how fast the summer came and went.  None of us in Minnesota are looking forward to winter.  We can only hope its short!  November 10th we received a foot of snow where I live.  The snow is a month early this year.  I hope there is no repeat like the winter of 2013/2014.

Smell
Very aromatic even without swirling my glass.  The Cabernet Sauvignon was young and fruity with aromas of blueberry, bing cherry, cocoa, and spice.

Taste
It was dry, full-bodied with balanced acidity.  The tannins were medium but soft with velvety mid-palate flavors and a long soft finish.

abv: 15.2%

How Much: $135 retail.

Region/Appellation: Napa Valley

Notes from the winery.
This 2011 bottling is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon fruit selected from a spectrum of vineyards — from St Helena to Howell Mountain to our Sacrashe estate in Rutherford. Our 2011 HALL “Kathryn Hall” Cabernet Sauvignon is a pure and nuanced wine to enjoy now and over the next 15+ years.

I rated the 2011 HALL “Kathryn Hall” Cabernet Sauvignon four glasses.  I enjoyed the wine all evening.  The Cabernet Sauvignon continued to develop and became even better through the night.

Life is too short to drink crappy wine!
