Whitehall Lane Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Silver Anniversary Reserve 1988

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1988 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a ruby-red color, displaying a pretty nose of rose petals, white cherries, strawberries, anise and tobacco. This wine has a light to medium body with an elegant and beautifully harmonious medium-length finish. Enjoy now through 2011.
