Whitehall Lane Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Silver Anniversary Reserve 2000
[$99.95] Never understood the interest. This reaffirms previous experiences.
Had this at dinner thrown for clients and they ordered it rather than having what was on the preselected menu. I expressed my love of Silver Oak and they shared, lucky for me. I enjoyed it with a spectacular filet from N9NE Steak. This is a lush, powerful yet elegantly balanced wine that hearkens to any cab dominant bordeaux. Jammy and fruity yet refined and just the right tannins and alcohol. Supple and delicious. We ordered a second bottle ;-)
A nose of eucalyptus, and oak. After decanting: more oak, with plums,menthol, and tree bark. Taste similar or worse, to a South African wine that would retail for under $20.
Four and a half glasses

The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color in addition to a big, cocoa-scented nose, a sweet entry on the palate, medium body, and a short, abrupt finish. A modest success for the vintage, it is a friendly, easy-to-drink effort that should be consumed over the next 7-8 years.
