Whitehall Lane Merlot Napa Valley 2014

Whitehall Lane was originally founded in 1979 in Napa Valley's historic Rutherford appellation. Owned by the Leonardini family since 1993, they farm about 110 acres in Napa Valley, including the Leonardini Vineyard in St. Helena

The aromas, flavors and finish are all very generous in this elegant Merlot.  Blackberry and cherry are at its core with pleasing hints of crushed violet and cedar. It is impeccably balanced, gaining complexity and spiciness from the Syrah and structure from Cabernet Sauvignon.  Its finish is long with a lingering hint of toasty oak.
