Wow, after all these years, this wine puffed it's chest out and performed. Paired with prime filet and poured straight from the bottle after about and hour post uncorking. It tasted like a refined cab. I thought it had 2-3 more years, the Mrs. felt it was perfect. Wish we had more.
This was opened and decanted. The color was dark red but at first we thought it was dead. with time and air it opened to have dark cherry aromas with some cassis. The tannins were integrated and smooth. It was a classy bottle of wine. Glad we waited.
It’s fun to break out some favorites from my early days of getting interested in wine…wasn’t sure we would get to it, but we were having a good time and the night was still young…I was surprised that it was still very dark with no signs of being a 13 year old bottle…cherries, blue fruit, vanilla and a wonderful mouthfeel…the finish was long…plenty of years left and seems to be getting better…I’m glad to have a couple more left…among the best bottles of Whitehall Lane I’ve had...the sentimental WOTN.
