Region California, Napa Valley
Brand Whitehall Lane
Alcohol/vol 14.7%
Candied black cherries and pomegranates burst out of this wine aromatically, coupled with graphite, cocoa dust, fresh tobacco leaf, cherry cola, baked croissant, and toasted vanilla. On the palate, this Merlot has fine, firm tannins alongside red currants, strawberry rhubarb pie, raspberry coulis, toasted walnuts, leather, and spice. It is supple in texture and shows attractive depth on the finish. Enjoy right now and through 2026 with proper cellaring.

A taut and sanguine red, with roasted cherry and macerated plum flavors that feature plenty of slate notes. Accents of ground black pepper and dried green herbs show on the tannic finish. Drink now.

The 2016 Merlot checks in as a blend of 86% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, and the rest Petit Verdot. A value-priced effort that gives up attractive notes of blackberries, cherries, spice, and leafy herbs, it's medium-bodied, balanced, and easy-drinking.

The 2016 Merlot is soft, plump and fruity, all of which make it a good choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Although certainly a pleasant wine, the 2016 could use more depth.
