WHITEHALL LANE MERLOT, NAPA VALLEY 2015

NVWE Notes: This fine and age-worthy Merlot offers bright aromas of red currant, Amarena cherry, cranberry, black raspberry and rose, with more subtle counterpoints of vanilla, baking spices, cedar and licorice root. It shows typical “2015 grip” on the palate, where flavors of red currant, pomegranate and sour red cherry create a slightly piquant foil to notes of dark tobacco, star anise, cocoa nibs, mace, clove and sandalwood. The finish is long and shows both fine structure and food-friendliness. With airing, notes of blueberry and black cherry bring an extra note of richness. Expect two years or more of steady improvement. Blended with 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Hearty red-fruit and graham cracker richness mark this well-made wine, blended with 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. A generous tannin structure provides a framework for the ripe weight as the finish explores aspects of sweet tobacco. Virginie Boone 2/1/2019

This stretches out nicely, with notes of sandalwood and Asian spice to the crushed red fruit flavors. Chocolate and cream details show on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 8,425 cases made.—Kim Marcus
