Whitehall Lane 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon – Superb! @Whitehalllane

Whitehall Lane is always a must stop for us on our trips to and through the Napa Valley.  The people there are great and their wine is consistently enjoyable; we always bring some home.  On an early visit to the area, we picked up two 2004 Cabernets, one, the Silver Anniversary and the other, a simple vintage bottle.  On this occasion, we opened the ‘basic’ 2004 bottle and decanted it to help it open up a bit.  Wow – this was a big fruit blast without being overpowering.  I found abundant blackberry/cassis flavors with the smoothness of a vanilla/cocoa powder backbone; it wasn’t tannic at all.  We enjoyed this taste of Napa.
