Wine Review: This slightly cloudy and medium garnet, dark ruby colored Merlot from Whitehall Lane opens with a blueberry and raspberry bouquet with cinnamon, leather, and mint. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with bright acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, plush, and a bit juicy. The flavor profile is a black cherry and black plum blend with notes of coffee, black currant, and graphite. We also picked up some hints of baking spice and dark chocolate. The finish is dry and its flavors and medium tannins drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would suggest pairing this Merlot with your favorite steak burrito or with Italian meatballs. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This Merlot offers notes of raspberry croissant, red currants, cocoa powder, and layers of graphite. The palate showcases fine, firm tannins alongside chocolate cherry lollipop, red plums, dried goji berries, and toasted brioche. It is supple in texture and shows attractive depth on the finish. Enjoy now and through 2035 with proper cellaring.
