Leonetti Merlot Walla Walla Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Wine Enthusiast: A classic take on Merlot--this is 100% varietal, and was aged for 15 months in new and neutral French oak barrels and botti. The flavors move through strawberry, raspberry and Bing cherry, with great breadth of flavor and texture throughout. The midpalate is concentrated and full, with a fine, lingering, superclean finish. (Sep 2012)

Very deep, nearly opaque core with a scarlet rim. Floral notes dominate the nose, with black licorice, lavender, wet rock, violet, blackberry, and complex earth aromas. The palate is smooth and expansive with bright, balanced acidity and a round mou... John Sweeney. A Merlot wine from Washington in USA. 2010 Leonetti Cellar Merlot 750ml

Bright ruby-red. Blackberry and licorice on the nose. Densely packed and vibrant but backward, with terrific cut and penetration to the black fruit and licorice flavors. Finishes with firm tannins and excellent black fruit persistence. Chris Figg... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Merlot wine from Washington in USA. 2010 Leonetti Cellar Merlot 750ml

Bright ruby-red. Blackberry and licorice on the nose. Densely packed and vibrant but backward with terrific cut and penetration to the black fruit and licorice flavors. Finishes with firm tannins and excellent black fruit persistence. Chris Figgins describes 2010 as "a perfect year like 2005 requiring no acidification." This structured and very promising merlot will need patience and may well merit an even higher rating down the road. 91+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Dense, dark, and lush but with amazing focus and levity. Loaded with dark blue and black fruits. Gorgeous high tone aromatics are reminiscent of brambleberry reduction compote. Long and plush on the palate, but with a fine grained tannin structure and bri
