    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine displays the finesse, smoothness and power that has become the signature for Whitehall Lane Cabernet. It's a wine with aromas and flavors of ripe wild blackberries, cassis and an underlying spiciness from French and American oak. This delicious Reserve offering displays great balance, ripeness and offers lingering flavors that lead to a long, silky smooth finish. Enjoy to 2020.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Feels softly ripe in the mouth, with pie-filling blackberries, cherries, mocha, plums, tobacco and sweet dusty spices.

    Sweet and slightly chocolaty in character with a strong streak of vanilla matching its very deep, optimally ripened, black-cherry fruit step for step, this outgoing effort is at once fairly intense and quite easy to access, yet it is built for keeping and holds lots in reserve. It slowly gives ground to youthful, acid-accentuated tannins and winds up a tad on the coarse side, but it looks sure to shine if it is given the four or five years that any good, young Cabernet needs and deserves.

    Purple hue with a fuchsia rim. Ripe aromas of black cherry and plum. The flavors reflect a solid core of black cherry fruit with dusty, youthful tannins. A well-made, balanced Cabernet that will continue to improve.
