2010 Leonetti Cellars Merlot Walla Walla Valley
Producer: Leonetti Cellars
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Merlot
Region: Walla Walla Valley
91(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2012
(100% merlot, as in 2008 and 2005): Bright ruby-red. Blackberry and licorice on the nose. Densely packed and vibrant but backward, with terrific cut and penetration to the black fruit and licorice flavors. Finishes with firm tannins and excellent black fruit persistence. Chris Figgins describes 2010 as "a perfect year, like 2005, requiring no acidification." This structured and very promising merlot will need patience, and may well merit an even higher rating down the road.
