External Reviews for Bommarito Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Harmonious and well-balanced, integrating anise, cedar, currant, mocha and mineral flavors, it picks up intensity and complexity on the finish. Drink now through 2007.
Wonderful purity of flavor, built around a solid, concentrated core of intense black cherry and blackberry fruit, with hints of cedar, sage, ansie and cassis flavors that are focused and long on the finish, ending with a rich, fruity aftertaste. Best from 2005 through 2012.
Compare this with wine that sell for two or three times the price! An immense effort, dark, rich and deeply concentrated, packed with layers of rich currant, chocolate, mocha, cherry and herbal nuances. Finishes with a powerful, persistent aftertaste, rich, ripe tannins and wonderful complexity. Best from 2003 thorough 2012.
Supple, harmonious and graceful, with mocha and dill-scented oak wrapped around rich currant, olive, herb and leathery notes. Well-balanced and complex, if missing the extra dimensions of past vintages. Best from 2004 through 2010.
Winemaker Dean Sylvester sources grapes from St. Helena, Rutherford, Calistoga, Oakville and Sonoma's Knights Valley for this red, including Cabernet Sauvignon from Whitehall Lane's Leonardini Vineyard and Merlot from the Whitehall Lane estate vineyard. Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot round out the blend.
A ripe nose boasts aromas cassis, blackberry, and dried herbs amplified by a hint of menthol. Full bodied on the palate, notes of anise, cherry and cedar lead into a smooth finish with long, firm tannins. While drinking well now, another two or thre... Geoffrey Binder. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2006 Whitehall Lane Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
So ripe in black currant and mocha fruit, so rich in sweet tannins, so well structured. It's an impeccable Cabernet that's beautiful now, but should hold through the decade.
Year after year Whitehall Lane Cabernet Sauvignon displays a blend of lush fruit with aromas of cherry currant and spicy oak. The wine has rich texture and flavors of blackberry plum and cherry. Whitehall Lane Cabernet has ample fruit weight in the mid-palate and velvety tannins. Beautifully balanced this California Cabernet is ready to enjoy now but with aging potential to 2012.
