BLEND: 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah
The cool summer months of 2011 slowed the ripening process, creating a longer growing season with excellent “hang-time”. The grapes were grown in the winery’s Estate Vineyard in Rutherford and select vineyards throughout Napa Valley. The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 18 months. Whitehall Lane has always utilized the art of blending to make a Merlot with layers of flavors, complexity and balance.
