WHITEHALL LANE 2016 “TRE LEONI” RED BLEND NAPA VALLEY
An overt, fruit-driven wine, with a bold mix of açaí berry, plum, blueberry and raspberry fruit, all wrapped in licorice and fruitcake notes. The polished, open finish lets the fruit play out. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel and Merlot. Drink now through 2021.” Wine Spectator 89 Points
“We were hunting for an image to complete our Tre Leoni package upgrade and this bold view of artist Jacqui Oakley’s oil on canvas painting kept stalking us. The vivid colors and focused eye of the lion not only impress, but also tell the story of what is in the bottle: it is a bold, impressive, focused wine loaded with vivid aromas, flavors, and texture.
This blend has amazing depth, balance, and big flavors. The nose evokes candied black fruit, red currants, stewed black plums, licorice, and dried sage. On the palate, it bursts with fresh blackberries, crème de cassis, dark chocolate, and mixed berry jam. This wine has great texture that ultimately finishes with round, silky smooth tannins. Enjoy Tre Leoni with your next barbeque and when gathering with family or friends.”
