Whom: The Winetasting.com team with friends and guests from Canton, Ohio and Chicago, Illinois
Review: We tasted this wine alongside seven other premium red wines (pictured above) from California, Italy and France. While they were truly all fabulous, the Whitehall Lane was the clear winner from California. The rich nose of blackberry, cassis and toasty oak transferred beautifully onto the palate which was supported by elegant tannins and a rich mouthfeel. A beautiful wine and an absolute shame that only 6 cases remain!

A superb example of a California Cabernet fruit bomb! Delcious blackberry and cassis fruit with refined tannins and a long finish. Tasted 07/20/2011. -KP

I have been enjoying red wines from Whitehall Lane since over a decade now - they produce amazing cabernets! They age perfectly and can be paired with anything off the BBQ. I just recently enjoyed this beauty with lamb chops. I can almost say with certainty that the 2005 has been my favorite of their recent vintages. This vintage still has more years to age, too.
