The 2010 Napa Valley Merlot follows in the traiditon of Whitehall Lane Merlot - a big, substantial "Cab lover's blend" that utilizes exceptional estate Merlot, Merlot from other oustanding valley floor vineyards, and Syrah deftly blended to dial in the balance and power.
This engaging Merlot delivers lush ripe cherry, spice, plum and toasty oak flavors. It is impressively concentrated yet holds the inherent softness of the Merlot fruit. Syrah enhances the aromas and texture while adding complexity and length to the soft, elegent finish.
Blend: 88% Merlot, 12% Syrah
