Figgins Estate Red Wine 2017, 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. 2017 vintage – “Dark to the rim, with signature aromatic notes of ripe red and blue fruits, tanned leather, black olive, and lilac. The nose simply makes me smile; it is so distinctly FIGGINS! On the palate, if I had to describe the wine in one word it would be precision. The way the sweet fruit and dramatic length are braced by lively acidity and tannins aligns so perfectly that the wine is, quite simply, delicious.” – From the Winery. Aged profile: 23 months in 62% in new French oak and 38% neutral French oak.
