Whitehall Lane 2006 Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon @Whitehalllane

We picked up the ’06 Cab while on a visit through Napa a couple years ago.  We love the people and wine from Whitehall Lane; it’s a consistent stop for us whenever we’re in the area.  The 2006 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is made up exclusively of Napa fruit and isn’t the typical Napa Cab in that it doesn’t have that long smooth finish, but to me, almost finishes like a syrah with some spicy notes that follow the cherry I get right up front.  It’s very enjoyable, and was a preview of the wonderful 2007 cab vintage to follow.
