Leonetti Cellar Red Bordeaux Blend Walla Walla Valley Reserve 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker notes: As always, Leonetti Reserve reflects our efforts to produce a wine amongst the finest in the world representing our very best efforts. It is only produced in exceptional vintages and blended in varying varietal percentages through diligent selection of individual barrels to bottle the greatest wine possible. 2004 is 5th consecutive vintage we have felt worthy of producing Leonetti Reserve. The wine is exceptionally dark, with a wonderfully complex nose dominated by ripe black fruits including plums and blackberries, dried flowers, smoke, crème cassis and vanilla, and licorice, all backed by a lovely minerality. The flavors on the palate are fat and expansive with wonderfully fresh acidity to balance. Built for immediate pleasure but also long-term aging, as shown by the wines ample yet perfectly ripe tannin and pure, long finish. Vineyards in this Wine Mill Creek Upland 100% - This is the first year that Leonetti Reserve has come from one single vineyard. 100% Estate Grown in the Walla Walla Valley Aging Profile Aged in new French barrels and large French Oak Botti for 22 mos. Blending Detail Cabernet Sauvignon 78%, Merlot 11%, Petit Verdot 11% Production Six hundred seventy cases

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.

Love this wine. We had it paired with a roast duck and asparagus and it was fabulous.
