Wine Advocate

The price of Whitehall Lane's 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon has gone up 20% since I reviewed the 2019, but past experience is that savvy shoppers may be able to find it slightly discounted. It still represents a decent value in the realm of Napa Cabernet. Black cherries and dusty loam notes are joined by hints of sage and thyme plus barrel-derived accents of vanilla and maple syrup. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky and supple, easy to drink, yet with enough structure to partner rare beef.


James Suckling

Dark-fruited and chocolaty character here with sweet spice and bark undertones. Full-bodied with firm tannins and polished texture. Attractive bitter sweet citrus peel character at the end. A little chewy in the finish. Attractive now, but better after 2025.

Leading off the 2021s, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon (there s 2% Merlot and 1% each of Malbec and Petit Verdot) has a deep ruby/plum hue to go with a modern, plush, medium to full-bodied style carrying ample toasty oak, some darker currant and blackberry like fruit, and some subtle floral nuances. I think it s an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon that will offer plenty of pleasure over the coming 7-8 years, if not longer.
