Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Rich and ripe, packed with beautiful currant and berry flavors, framed with superfine tannins that let the fruit and subtly spicy overtones linger effortlessly on the long finish.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

This is the winery's first nonreserve Cabernet from 100% Walla Walla fruit. It’s a subtle style shift: more floral qualities, more finesse, a mix of red fruits and a light hint of bell pepper. Tannins are soft but substantial; in the mouth, flavors extend and include interesting herb and leaf nuances. The core of ripe fruit is there and firmly in place; the tannins are showing a bit of stem right now and the oak is hiding.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The rich, highly expressive aromas of the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley burst from the glass with cassis, spiced oak, jammy blackberries, candied plums, smoke, grilled toast, and juniper berries. Medium to full-bodied, it coats the taster's palate with Italian Roma tomatoes, red cherries, assorted dark fruits, and countless spices. This lush wine, a blend of 89.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.4% Merlot, and 2.1% Petit Verdot, is dense, concentrated, and reveals loads of tannin in its finish.

Leonetti Cellar, , Washington
Leonetti
Exclusive production of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot have been the hallmark of Gary Figgins' Leonetti Cellar winery in the suburbs of Walla Walla. Grapes from his own vineyard and from other nearby properties are used to create these rich and robust varietal wines. The attractive new winery building made of native stone houses barrel storage and fermenting tanks.

Central Coast

View More

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley. Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types, and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.

Chardonnay

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes...

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
