New Era Program – 2014 I de V 

Created in complete secrecy by winemaker Jason Moulton and proprietor Tom Leonardini, the New Era wines varietals are revealed once they have reached perfection.  

These premiere offerings mark a new era in winemaking at Whitehall Lane Winery. Tom and Jason started the New Era program with the desire to appreciate the simplicity in varietal choices that showcase the complexity of wine.

The 2014 I de V is a very unique statement of one of the five Bordeaux varietals grown in Napa Valley. This first bottling is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from select vineyard rows of the Leonardini Family’s vineyards. It saw 28 months in oak barrels of which 75% was new French oak.

 “This wine looks terrific, with graphite, blackcurrant, unsmoked cigar tobacco, pen ink and licorice. It is full-bodied and fleshy, with oodles of black fruits, a touch of barrique and a long finish. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.” – Robert Parker
