Whitehall Lane Winery Tasting Shows a Winner

VP of winery Tom Leonardini shows wide range of wines

Whitehall Lane's VP was in town to show off their newest wines, one of which was a real winner. We started with their Sauvignon Blanc ($18), a mouthful of a wine with a noticeable amount of residual sugar.

Both their Merlot ($28) and Cabernet ($40) were rich and intense, but it was their rotund, grippy and food-friendly Reserve Cabernet ($75) that won the night.
