Leonetti Cellar Merlot Columbia Valley 1995
Merlot is a deep red wine with a beautifully integrated nose of black fruits, vanillin and anise with toasted oak notes. This wine is very soft in the mouth but backed up with nice structure. A very rich wine, it has a finish that seems to go on for minutes. A classic Leonetti Merlot with good aging potential.

External Reviews for Leonetti Cellar Merlot Columbia Valley
A distinctive beauty, if not the blockbuster of previous vintages. Light in texture but ripe in flavor, with black cherry, spice and vanilla notes ringing on the long finish, which grows richer with each sip. Oak notes add depth. Best after 1999. 2,4...
