Figgins Estate Red Wine 2016, Walla Walla Valley, Washington

For more than 30 years, the Figgins Family has been producing wines of consistently high quality at Leonetti Cellar, which was bonded in 1977 by Founders Gary and Nancy Figgins. What started as Gary’s vision to make world-class wines in Walla Walla has turned out to be a true American success story. Today, Leonetti Cellar produces some of the most sought after wines in the world. Figgins was born from a vision to transform a phenomenal vineyard site, into a singular, estate grown non-varietal red wine blended from Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Merlot. The goal from the beginning has been to most highly elevate the potential of this special site through viticultural and winemaking wisdom. 2016 vintage – “As always, the wine is densely colored to the rim of the glass. The stunningly fragrant nose of blue fruits, cedar, caramel apple, caramel popcorn, flowering rosemary, clove, dried herbs, and apricots is fascinating and complex. Precise mouthfeel, dense fruit, and soft tannin with incredible freshness are hallmarks of the 2016 Figgins Estate Red.” – From the Winery. Aged profile: 23 months in 60% in new French oak and 40% neutral French oak.
