Winemaker's Notes

The wine jumps from the glass with a brilliant, high-toned fruit nose of flowers, freshly cut fruit, and cherry liqueur backed with subtle, integrated spicy oak. This classic Leonetti Merlot presents soft but dense sweet fruit on the pallet as fully ripe, mellow tannins disappear into a long, seamless finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep ruby-red. Knockout nose combines dark cherry, black plum, licorice, graphite, chocolate and mint, all lifted by a floral top note. Sweet on entry, then spicy and firm in the middle, with flavors of black fruits, mint and licorice. Dense without being weighty; not a fat or thick wine but offers lovely lift. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins."
