The spoils of Napa

Stopped in this winery in Napa last week and brought back a few bottles. Whitehall Lane

One was the 2002 Merlot (7% syrah & 5% cabernet).  Drank it this weekend.  It was rich and nice, but tasted a bit young...perhaps another year or two resting would really open it up.  Might have to pick up another bottle or two to test that theory.  Paid $26.
