Whitehall Lane Merlot Napa Valley 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

89 points Robert Parker: Whitehall Lane's 2014 Merlot is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and spent 19 months in a combination of 30% new French and American cooperage. The wine displays tobacco leaf, black cherry and a touch of chocolate in a medium-bodied, fleshy, lush and delicious style meant for consumption over the next 7-8 years. Drink: 2016-2024. (Oct 2016)

Really a very nice, smooth, supple, and a bit ripe Merlot. Round mouthfeel with loads of milk chocolate and roasted plum. Not much tannin and acidity, so this one is probably not going to get all that much better than it is now, but it is quite good now in a simple, direct, and pleasant way.

two words: over oaked. when can you ever taste the fruit from cabernet? it reminded me of so many other napa cabernets. and why do they have to charge so much. review takes into account for price.

The one and only Whitehall Lane Merlot! What's that? You don't drink Merlot? Well then you probably haven't had Whitehall Lane's. Fear not though because a few bottles are just a couple clicks away.

Wine Tasting NotesThis Merlot is enticing. It has appealing aromas of blackberry, toasty oak and a hint of spice. The wine is inherently soft and delivers silky flavors of berry, fig, cocoa and plum. With ample fruit, good weight in the mid-palate and velvety tannins, this beautifully balanced wine is ready to enjoy now, but with aging potential to 2010.
