NEW: Revisiting the 1999 Reserve 10 Years Later
Do you have this wine in your collection? In February of 2010, Jim Laube of Wine Spectator had good things to say: "Cabernet Sauvingons that hit the 10-year mark in excellent condition are good candidates for aging another decade. That's the case with Whitehall Lane's 1999 Napa Valley Reserve. It's still dark-colored, ripe and supple, with spicy plum, blackberry and anise flavors that are pure, rich and elegant, ending with a long persistent finish... amazingly youthful and complex, ending with delicate berry notes. 94 points again, non-blind."
Do you still have bottles of our 1997 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon or 1997 Napa Valley Cabernet aging in your cellar? Not only do they taste delicious, but they are also increasing in value. In a recent issue, Wine Spectator magazine reported that according to their auction index our Whitehall Lane 1997 Reserve Cabernet increased in value by 175% and the 1997 Napa Valley Cabernet rose by 96%.
