This striking 2010 Cabernet is loaded with bright, vibrant fruit and has exceptional body to match. The aromas and flavors of blackberry, currant, black cherry and toasty oak meld exquisitely with ample midpalate weight, a silky mouth-feel and luxurious tannins that add good length to the finish. A great wine to enjoy today but it will also improve through cellar aging beyond 2020.
Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 2% Malbec, 1% Petite Verdot
"Blackcurrant and olive nose, with depth, finesse and well-judged oak. Voluptuous and forward palate with lots of richness and supple fruit. Poised, with grainy, firm tannins and a medium length.
Drink 2014–2030 "
"Readers looking for a reasonably good value in Napa Cabernet Sauvignon should check out Whitehall Lane’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. At $40, this wine delivers the goods. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 2% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of cassis, white chocolate and spice, round, gentle, opulent flavors, a velvety texture and an irresistible personality. Full and rich, it should easily age for a decade. "
