2009 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
BLEND: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 2% Petite Verdot
The 2009 vintage is primarily a blend of the winery's Fawn Park Vineyard, Millennium MM Vineyard and Leonardini Vineyard fruit. The small amounts of Malbec and Petit Verdot add color, depth and complexity to this classic offering. The wine was aged in 80% French and 20% American oak barrels for 25 months. This deep wine has inviting aromas of berry and toasty oak with flavors of cassis, dark berry and hints of mocha and cedar. Understated toasty oak supple tannins beautifully frame the gorgeous ripe fruit. Enjoy this wine through 2022.
Whitehall Lane 2009 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points & Cellar Selection
Wine Spectator: 91 Points
Whitehall Lane Reserve has a tradition as being our finest Cabernet Sauvignon selected from the very best vineyard blocks. Reserve is always a powerful, complex and intense Cabernet showcasing the structure and finesse of premier Rutherford and St. Helena fruit and highly skilled winemaking. Approachable while young, yet very much a cellar candidate.
We are pleased to continue that tradition with the release of 2009 Reserve, from an outstanding vintage sure to be sought after.
