Whitehall Lane Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
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.
