WHITEHALL LANE CABERNET SAUVIGNON LEONARDINI VINEYARD ST. HELENA NAPA VALLEY 2012
NVWE Notes: This outstanding young Cabernet is deep, seductive and classy to the nose, where dark cherry, black currant, blackberry, toasted black fig, bitter chocolate, tobacco, baking-spice and laurel scents are all discernible. It proves palate-coating and every bit as complex in the mouth, as sandalwood, cedar, nut husk, clove, peppered bouillon, licorice root, date sugar,black tea and hints of leather and rosemary frame-in a richer core of black currant, mulberry and black fig. The finish is ultra-long and appropriately grippy beneath the gorgeous layers of fruit and spice. It’s virtues expand dramatically with airing, and after a while, black cherry and blueberry emerge as the main themes. Expect, at minimum, four years of steady growth and plenty of life beyond.
A pure, rich and layered effort, with tiers of complex currant, dark berry and espresso-laced oak. Elegantly styled, this drinks well already and should hold over the next decade. Shows lots of nuance. Drink now through 2024. 504 cases made. Issue Web Only - 2016 JL
