The 2014 II de V is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietals, aged 28 months in 75% new French oak. This looks to be an impressive proprietary blend, with a dense ruby/purple color and loads of spring flowers intermixed with blackberries, cassis, coffee bean, white chocolate and a touch of background oak. It is lusty, layered, plush, and medium to full-bodied with light tannin. Drink it over the next 15 or so years.

WINEMAKER NOTES

The 2014 II de V is an exceptional statement of two of the five Bordeaux varietals grown in Napa Valley. We know the lion’s share is Cabernet Sauvignon but the other Bordeaux variety is Petit Verdot. This bottling is selected from the winery’s top vineyard blocks.

THE VINTAGE

These premiere offerings mark a new era in winemaking at Whitehall Lane. With quality being the driving force behind this exclusive wine, the 2014 vintage provided two uniquely exquisite wines. One wine is a single varietal, and the second wine has two varietals—I de V and II de V respectively.
