Whitehall Lane Cabernet Reserve United States California Napa Valley Red 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Connoisseurs' Guide: Whitehall Lane's Cabernets are always among the riper and more outgoing to be found, and this latest version of the winery's standard-bearing bottling shows all the panache and full-bore ripeness that we expect. It piles splashy oak high upon its concentrated ripe-cherry fruit, but it pays for its early richness with a bit too much closing toughness. A bit at odds with itself in its ripe-dry finish, it still has plenty to chew on and will pair well with rich lamb stews. (Dec 2001)

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. 8,400 cases made.
