Tasting Notes

"This red offers an intensely fruity aroma, with well-knit flavors of plum tart, wild berry and dark cherry. A minerally snap lingers into the finish, offering luscious spiciness, with chocolate and dried green herbal nuances. Drink now through 2025.

The Producer

Whitehall Lane

Whitehall Lane, named after the road that runs along the south border of the property, is a small, family-owned winery in the Napa Valley’s Rutherford appellation. Founded in 1979, the winery took full advantage of the region’s unique terroir by successfully producing Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Today the Leonardini family, which owns and operates approximately 140 acres of Napa Valley vineyards and the winery, produces 45,000 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay.

In Whitehall Lane’s short history, the winery has developed into a world-class operation with elegant, handcrafted wines. The efforts of the Leonardini family are lauded in numerous accolades from wine publications. In a recent write up in Wine Spectator magazine, Whitehall Lane’s Cabernet Sauvignons are rated a great value and are ranked in Napa’s Top 50. The publication praises winery owner Tom Leonardini, stating, “his commitment to quality is evident in vineyard sources and classy wines, led by skilled Winemaker Dean Sylvester.” In its year-end ranking of wines, Wine Spectator has also included Whitehall Lane an unprecedented three times in five years for producing wines rated among the top five in the world.
