2019 Whitehall Lane Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: This beautifully blended 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is perfectly balanced with excellent fruit concentration. On the nose, this wine offers fresh blueberries, blackberry pie, huckleberry jam, black cherry cola, baking spices, black olives, cedar, and a touch of graphite. The palate offers smooth and velvety tannins, blackberry coulis, dried black cherries, blueberry compote, dark chocolate, toasted walnuts, croissants, and a touch of vanillin with a big finish that lingers. This offering is enjoyable today but will also evolve with cellar aging through 2035.
Blend: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot
James Suckling - "Notes of blackcurrants, baking spices and chocolate with leafy character. Full and chewy with soft tannins that frame the wine. Sensation of graphite-like minerality. Tight finish. Drink after 2023."
Wilfred Wong - "The 2019 Whitehall Lane Cabernet Sauvignon is a picture-perfect example of what a Napa Cab should be. This wine shines with aromas and flavors of black fruit, licorice, and a hint of oak. Pair it with a Carne Asada Burrito."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Nearly all Cabernet Sauvignon (there's 2% Petit Verdot), the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon combines notes of ripe cherries with resinous herbs and vanilla on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is silky and ripe, delivering plenty of red-berried flavor. Sure, it could be richer and more textured, more concentrated and dense, but then it probably wouldn't sell for $50. It's a solid bargain in terms of Napa Cabernet. Best after 2022. "
