(ST. HELENA, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 25, 2020) – HALL Wines, one of America’s most popular luxury Cabernet Sauvignon producers, has announced plans to host its annual Kathryn Hall Release Party in a virtual “Home Edition” format this year.
The Kathryn Hall Release Party: Home Edition celebrates the release of the 2017 vintage of HALL’s flagship wine, Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the Rutherford and Napa Valley appellations. The Release Party will be held Friday, September 18 on Facebook Live as part of HALL’s ongoing virtual Happy Hour series. Additionally, on Thursday, September 10 a special multiple vintage tasting of the Kathryn Hall wines will take place for HALL wine Club Members only.
“Each year, we look forward to celebrating the release of the newest vintage of this elegant Cabernet,” says HALL Wines owner, Kathryn Hall. “The energy that the Release Party creates each year is always incredible. This year while we will miss hosting our guests at the winery, we can bring this excitement through an online format to a much wider audience and do so safely. We can’t wait to share this very special program which includes a tasting and discussion of the wonderful 2017 vintage, plus music and conversation with The Brothers Osborne. We hope to see everyone there!”
HALL’s flagship wine, the Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon, is defined by its core of dark,
succulent Sacrashe Vineyard fruit located just above the Rutherford Appellation at the top eastern ridge of the Vaca Mountain range in Napa Valley. The wine is characterized by an interplay of elegance and concentration and displays voluptuous, dark berry fruit with notes of crushed lavender.
Kathryn Hall Cabernet fans throughout the country have been purchasing the flagship wine as an entertaining staple when hosting friends and family for the past 18 vintages.
Since the first vintage was produced in 1992, this wine has been one of the highest rated in HALL’s portfolio, earning 95 scores rated 90 points and above from the industry’s top critics including The Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, and Vinous. Most notably, the 2008 Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon earned the #2 spot in Wine Spectator’s “Top 100” list in 2011.
