Whitman Cellars is a Walla Walla producer. The Killer Cab is the winery’s table wine that is consistently an excellent value. The 2006 vintage has gone up in price a few dollars and doesn’t seem to be as frequently on sale as previous vintages. However, the fruit for this release is exclusively from the Walla Walla Valley, and the results show. Whitman wines always seem to drink better at a temperature of about 62 degrees so make sure to cool this one down a bit.
