Whitehall Lane’s Bommarito Merlot is named after one of Napa Valley’s pioneer winegrowers, Dominic Bommarito. This month, Gold Medal Wine Club proudly introduces the winery’s first vintage of the Bommarito Merlot.

This excellent Merlot has very ripe fruit aromas of black cherry and plum and rich toasty spice in the nose. Wonderfully satisfying, from its up-front fruit aromas to its clean cherry, berry, and vanilla flavors, it tracks evenly from front to back and leaves lingering notes of fruit, subtle oak and spice. Smooth tannins and a rich, velvety finish make this wine extremely enjoyable to drink today. Harvested from three separate Rutherford vineyards in Napa Valley. Try it with Beef Stroganoff or spicy Lasagna.
