WhiteHall Lane Winery – St. Helena (Napa Valley), California – Two Wines (a $75 Value)…..Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 &  Pinot Noir 2008 – Whitehall Lane Pinot Noir is elegant, graceful and very versatile with food from Carneros.  This Pinot Noir is a joy to drink.  It smells great and tastes even better with supple flavors of  ripe cherry, strawberry and toasty oak.   Balanced and smooth as Pinot should be.  It works well with a wide  range of cuisine or as a sipper.  Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 – 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot &  7% Petite Verdot.  This 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon has intense color and aromas of raspberry, and toasty oak that leap forth. The berry and plum flavors are concentrated with a rich, mouth-coating texture. With loads of fruit and velvety tannins, this beautiful blend is enjoyable now but will age gracefully through 2016.
