Leonetti Cellar Merlot 2018
Leonetti Cellar Merlot is all a Merlot strives to be: concentrated, luscious and smooth. Extremely dark and impressively structured. Aromas of roses, ripe mixed plums, hints of cedar ad creamy cinnamon burst from the nose. The broad and rich palate entices seductively with its incredibly focused fruit and silky tannins.
Merlot is often thought of as Cabernet’s little sister, but Leonetti Cellar strongly believes that in the Walla Walla Valley it produces wines capable of standing on their own merits and time has proven this. The Merlot for this wine is grown on Leonetti's cooler sites with slightly heavier soils.
The wine ages for 15 months in new and once-filled French oak barrels and neutral oval botti.
Ageing potential: Made to age for 15–25 years with proper cellaring (stored horizontally at 55–57 degrees). Drink now through 2038.
