Winemaker's Notes:

This attractive blend is loaded with floral and bright fruit qualities. Aromas of cherry, violet and sweet vanilla meld with supple flavors of currant, red berry, a hint of cappuccino and toasty oak. The wine is nicely balanced with great length on the finish. The richness and ample fruit make it a fine choice to enjoy now but it will also improve with additional aging through 2018.

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 3% Petite Verdot, 1% Malbec

About Whitehall Lane Winery:

We are a small, family owned winery in Napa Valley's historic Rutherford appellation. We own approximately 110 acres of prime Valley-floor vineyards including the Leonardini Vineyard in St. Helena and are committed to making the finest Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Reserve wine.

The winery continues to receive accolades and awards for producing some of the greatest wines in the world. In Wine Spectator's year-end ranking of wines, Whitehall Lane has been honored an unprecedented three times in five years for producing wines rated among the top five in the world. The winery has also been voted Winery of the Year from the Quarterly Review of Wines and Wine and Spirits Magazine.

In our short history, Whitehall Lane has developed into a world-class winery. The efforts of the Leonardini Family are evident in the recent run of accolades from wine publications but are even more apparent in the beautifully made, elegant wines we continue to make.
