2006 Whitehall Lane Winery & Vineyards Carneros Pinot Noir

14.2% alc. $35. This is not a misprint. Whitehall Lane has a stellar reputation for producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley. They began releasing a Carneros Pinot Noir with the 2005 vintage. · Toasted oak dominates the aromatics with a little funk and green notes. There is a solid core of red Pinot fruits with toasted oak in the background. The tannins are quite nimble and soft. The finish is a bit sour. The overriding theme of this wine is oak.
