    January 3, 2019 - Still holding up well. A bit better than the last bottle I opened. Refined and lighter style cab further softened by the extended aging. Definitely drink any remaining bottles now.

    December 26, 2014 - Picked up in 1998, it moved from CA to OH with us in 2008 but after 1hr decanter exposure it smoothed right out on this 26 December 2014. Paired with BBQ steak dinner made for a spectacular evening meal.

    August 1, 2014 - Had two of these over a week. First one was flat, still good but no real flavor. Table wine Second one week later real fruity and tasty not as bold as they were. I say drinking now if you got them. Any 97's out there?? Great Whitehall years. Still one of my favorites with Spotswood Caymus Louis

    December 10, 2012 - Sometimes you just need to hold them until that perfect moment arrives. Really great bottle.

    August 28, 2010 - The wine was good, but it didn't quite meet my expectations for a late 90's Whitehall Lane (although 1998 wasn't a great year). Still holding up but probably past prime. Nice deep color a body, but fruit lacking (probably due to age). Oh well, waited too long to open.
