WHITEHALL LANE CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY 2012 1.5L MAGNUM
NVWE Notes: This already tasty Cabernet sports a fruit-dominated nose, with blackberry, black cherry, black currant and a hint of violet rising above notes of blueberry, vanilla, sandalwood and baking spices. It has a slightly more jammy tone on the palate, where soft tannins bring structure without harshness to its soft-edged, lingering flavors of blackberry, black cherry, blueberry, violet and sandalwood. Although it seems more or less ready to drink, it should grow silkier and a bit more complex over the next two years. Blended with 6% Merlot, 5% Petite Verdot and 4% Malbec.
With a healthy helping of Merlot, as well as Petit Verdot and Malbec, this Cab is soft and well integrated, high in acidity with layers of bright, just-picked raspberry. Lurking in the underbelly of its soul are elements of cedar and dried herb. V.B.
