Whitehall Lane Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
This offering is immediately attractive with richly floral aromas of crushed flowers, violet and ripe cherry. The texture of this wine is generously fruity and delightfully silky with flavors of blackberry, blueberry and toasty oak. This classic Cabernet Sauvignon has outstanding balance with a long supple finish and good structure that lends to the age worthiness of this wine.
"A sensational Cab that exhibits power and opulence in the ripe blackcurrant, cherry, cocoa and new oak flavors, yet is subtlely balanced and harmonious. Showcases preternaturally gorgeous tannins, soft and sweet. The more you sip, the greater the impression. Cellar Selection."
"As impressive as that is, slightly more impressive, more supple and complex is the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. Opaque ruby/purple, with notes of spice box, toasty oak, black currant jam, and blackberries, it is layered, full-bodied, rich, expansive, and deep."
The Wine Advocate
"Medium-density riches of dark chocolate and creamy oak lift the ripe black cherry fruit at the heart of this tidy wine. Hints of cranberry add a note of brightness, and the wine's stellar balance and great length help it outlast a dose of tannin in the finish. It could use a few years of bottle age to gain greater smoothness and nuance, but its richness makes it a fine choice for steaks and roasts even now."

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
