I forget I have a bunch of Whitehall Lane wines and so often overlook them just because they are sort of under the radar nowadays. However, their insane consistency is something to truly admire. I pulled this out the other night and was completely amazed at how wonderful this was showing. A beautifully balanced wine that a lover of Cali power Cabs would enjoy yet enough finesse to compliment a great steak. Cassis and plum aromas and a little cigar wrapper enticed the palate with what was to come and to me the wine really pulled it off. Great on the attack with wonderful fruit flavors and a nice pop of acidity in the mid palate to keep the palate fresh and the 30 second or so finish just completed the picture. Well done!!

Had the wine with rare, grilled rib eye steak, corn on the cob and spinach salad. I chose this wine because I expected big things (90+) to go along with my birthday steak and was a bit disappointed. The wine was a nice bluish purple, plum color. Nose was nice with mixed notes of chocolate and oak underlying the basic California cab aromas. Taste was sweeter than I expected with lots of fruit but no layers of the fruit flavors. There was a lot of chocolate; the oak was mild and the tannin was soft and smooth. Finish was nice but as we drank more there was little bit of green astringent bite that came out. A good cab, no doubt, but not worth the $50+ that my friend who gave it to me had to pay; I could have bought several different bottles of equally well made and equal or better quality cabs for 1/3 the price.
