The wine shows beautiful dark ruby color to the rim. It exhibits an incredible purity of black and blue fruits, speckled with a potpourri of heirloom rose petals, earth and balsa wood. On the palate the wine has massive amounts of sumptuous fruit as if derived from a berry compote reduction, incredible length, cleansing acidity, and an absolutely seamless finish.

This is the third release of Figgins, a single wine produced by Leonetti’s Chris Figgins from his Figgins Estate vineyard. Intensely aromatic, it explodes from the glass with baking spices and deep cassis fruit. Over the course of three days it opened into a sleek, stylish, complex mix of purple- and black-berries, dried herbs, bark, dusty cocoa and a streak of caramel. Long and lush, it’s a wine to cellar for a decade or more.

On another level, the 2010 Estate Red Wine is something to behold! A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon — yet with smaller portions of Merlot and Petit Verdot — aged in 75% new and 25% 1-year-old French oak barrels for 20 months, it has a decidedly dark fruit profile with Pauillac-like aromas of black raspberry, creme de cassis, coffee bean, graphite, mineral and toasted bread all emerging from the glass. Deep, rich and layered, with a full-bodied, concentrated and structured feel on the palate, it fleshes out beautifully with air and is up there with the creme de la creme of the vintage and region. It needs 2–3 years of bottle age (or more) and will have 20–25 years of evolution. Drink 2016–2035. Coming from an estate vineyard that’s located on the eastern edge of the Walla Walla Valley, off of Mill Creek Road and at an elevation of roughly 1,750 feet, these wines are made by Chris Figgins (of Leonetti) and show classic profiles. As the score suggests, this is one producer not to miss!

A Bordeaux-style blend and a delicious wine, powerfully fruity, silky, spicy, and seductive. It shows lovely balance and nice threading of anise, cocoa, caramel barrel flavors. - P.G. Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from Washington in USA. 2008 Figgins Estate Red 750ml
