Leonetti Cellar Merlot Columbia Valley 1993
Winemaker notes: Beautiful dark red color. A nose of lavender and violet florals gives way to candied bing cherry, subtle toasty oak notes, and a wine just dripping with gobs of ripe fruit. The wine coats the palate with it’s glycerin and sweet fruit. This wine has a purity of fruit and length that even the finest estates of Pomerol and St. Emilion would envy. Everything is in balance and this generous wine is ready to drink now but will also reward cellaring. Aging Profile Aged in new and second fill French and American oak barrels for 15 months. Blending Detail Merlot 76%, Cab. Sauv. 13%, Carmenere 8%, Petit Verdot 4%
Each of our vineyard solis shape the wine that comes from it. This is the essence of terroir. The soil of Seven Hills at the south end of the Valley is Ellisford Silt Loam.

Dark in color and lavishly oaked, but with plenty of fruit to match the buttery, toasty notes. Black cherry, currant and wild berry flavors lead into a rich and lingering finish.
