2014 Whitehall Lane Merlot
The property on Whitehall Lane in St Helena has been active farm land since the 1800's but was planted to vines in the latter part of the century. While The ownership changed many times, it was finally in 1979 that Art Finkelstein bought the land and founded Whitehall Lane Winery. By 1994 he was ready for a quieter life and sold to Tom Leonardini.
Tom and his children run the business today having added several other vineyards in pursuit of outstanding Napa Valley wine. Whitehall Lane has always utilized the art of blending to make a Merlot with layers of flavors, complexity and balance.
The plush red raspberry and cherry flavors and aromas leap from the glass. This merlot has an amazing core of ripe, jammy berry and currant fruit that is beautifully framed by toasty oak. It is supple in texture and shows attractive depth on the finish.
Blend: 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
