Whitehall 2016 Cab Mancino
Whitehall Lane Cabernet Sauvignon "Mancino Lanciatore" Oak Knoll, Napa Valley 2016
NVWE Notes: The nose of this fine young Cabernet, if youthfully coiled, is tightly focused on dark cherry, violet, black raspberry and teaberry supported by undercurrents of dry red rose, sandalwood and vanilla toffee. It proves more densely fruit-packed than expected on the palate, with chiseled flavors that mirror the aromas and an elegant, racy texture, polished tannins, and impressive length. The finish is deftly dinner-balanced, so current enjoyment is a plus, while another four years or so of cellar time with bring forth the wines underlying femininity.
