WHITEHALL LANE MALBEC, NAPA VALLEY 2014
NVWE Notes: Tannic grip and dusty minerality are both evident when this gutsy Malbec is opened, yet airing exposes a load of rich varietal character. The nose offers deep blueberry, dark plum, olallieberry, black tea, clove, licorice root, dried laurel and rosemary scents. On the palate, it proves as rich in body and firm in backbone as expected, while youthful zest and grip create a cutting balance. The finish is complex and long and with a bit of airing it reveals optimally-ripe blueberry, olallieberry, black plum and violet fruit in lovely harmony with equally intense flavors of black licorice, dusted chocolate and star anise. Pair it with steaks and dark roasts now, or wait five years to see it’s full glory. 268 cases made.
