Leonetti Cellar Merlot 2020, Walla Walla Valley, Washington

Intensely deep color. The aromatics are rich and sweet with notes of pomegranate, plum, raspberry, baking spices, vanilla, bay leaf, and a hint of plumeria. Broad and elegant on the palate with cherry chocolate character, a silky-smooth mouthfeel, and a plush, lengthy finish. From Loess, Mill Creek Upland and Leonetti Old Block Vineyards. Aged 15 months in new and once-filled French oak barrels and neutral oval botti. 100% Merlot.
