Whitehall Lane Holiday 4-Pack
2018 Whitehall Lane Cabernet Sauvignon Rassi Vineyard Sonoma Valley
NVWE Notes: Black raspberry, black currant preserves, dark sour cherry and sweet dark plum join hazelnut, baking-spice and sweet vanilla scents in the nose of this notably well-priced Cab. Black currant, blackberry and mulberry flavors dominate on the palate, where polished tannins join nut husk, black tea leaf and graphite undercurrents to bring depth and firm the mouth-feel. The result is a gutsy, lingering medley of all that the aromas promise. A fine companion to steaks and winter stews right now, it is likely to improve for at least eighteen months.
2018 Whitehall Lane Merlot Napa Valley
NVWE Notes: Deep in fruit and graced by toasty oak tones, the nose of this youthful Merlot is a medley of blueberry, blackberry and sweet dark plum poised above a richer core of dark sour cherry, with accents of hazelnut, baking-spice and toffee. It reveals impressive grip and plenty of pretty oak on the palate, where dark sour cherry and blueberry dominate while flavors of nut husk, coffee bean and sandalwood bring sweet-savory contrast. The finish is rich, balanced, impressively gutsy and lingering, and the wine should grow ever more attractive over the next two or three years.
2019 Whitehall Lane Chardonnay Sonoma Valley
NVWE Notes: Opening with impressive elegance, this stylish Chardonnay offers scents of toasted meringue and pastry crust in support of fresh Fuji apple, lemon curd, quince paste and toasted walnut scents. It is tongue-coating, quietly zesty and has a genteel suppleness on the palate, where baked green apple, white peach, quince paste and preserved lemon flavors rise above a more subtle undercurrent of honey-drenched nuts. Lingering and delightfully food-worthy already, it is likely to grow ever more so over the next eighteen months.
2019 Whitehall Lane Sauvignon Blanc Rutherford Napa Valley
NVWE Notes: Just released and vibrantly fresh, this bottling wants a little bit of airing to reveal all of its many virtues. The aromas unfold as a focused melange of gooseberry, honeydew melon, grapefruit pith, lemon grass, lemon zest and white peach pit scents. It is delightfully refreshing in the mouth yet a suppleness of texture adds gentility to the honeydew, peach pit, gooseberry, grapefruit, lemon grass, white pepper and mineral flavors. These flavors linger in a ready-to-enjoy, food-friendly style that might make this an ideal compliment to fillet of sole in a kumquat buerre blanc.
