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.

At its core, this is classic cassis-scented Cabernet cut by tannins. For now, that core is surrounded by the walnut charriness of oak, the cran-apple edges of youthful acidity, the fragrant, candle wax scent of underdeveloped fruit. Cellar this, and the cassis should win out in the end.

Bright medium ruby. Fresh aromas of blackcurrant, violet and powdered chocolate. Bright, spicy flavors of currant, currant leaf and spices, with a sweet, creamy quality in the middle. Finishes with dusty, fairly ripe tannins. Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1999 Whitehall Lane Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml
