Leonetti Cellar

Walla Walla Valley Merlot 2018

This outstanding 100% Merlot was largely sourced from the Loess Vineyard (66%) with smaller portions from the Mill Creek Upland and their 40-year-old original block at the Leonetti winery. Needing a two hour decant to fully open, the 2018 Leonetti Merlot slowly unveils layers of toasty oak that are woven together with black cherry cordial, sagebrush and milk chocolate tones that all come together in the glass. The silky texture truly impresses, as the wine effortlessly glides across the mid-palate. Cocoa powder dusted red cherries greet you, while flavors of underbrush, damp earth and espresso bean all enliven the senses. A complete wine, the 2018 Leonetti Cellar Merlot will enjoy a long life in the cellar. Try to resist this stunning new wine for at least another two years. Drink 2022-2040- 95 — 6 months ago

Leonetti Cellar

Walla Walla Valley Sangiovese 2014

The 2014 Sangiovese from Leonetti was Sourced from the Seven Hills, Loess, Mill Creek Upland and Serra Pedace vineyards, and incudes a small percentage of Aglianico (5%). This absolutely stunning Sangiovese opens with intense aromatics of red cherries, raspberries, cigar box and rose petals. The palate has wonderful minerality and shows impressive mid-palate weight, with flavors of dark cherry, red raspberries, pipe tobacco, milk chocolate, mint and pencil shavings that expand effortlessly. The astringency is absolutely wonderful, as is the long, mineral and dark fruit driven finish. This wine will cellar exceedingly well for a decade or more as this is a tremendous showing by Chris Figgins who has carefully crafted one of the most compelling examples new world Sangiovese that you will find.

Stoneridge Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2016

Last vintage from Stoneridge vineyard. Nice balance of acidity. I prefer the newer vintages from Upland though. This one is still nice. — 3 months ago

Quilceda Creek

Washington Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Every so often you encounter a wine from a familiar grape or from a familiar AVA that defies categorization. This is one of those wines. Mint, allspice, cinnamon, and wild blackberries on the nose—with just a hint of upland pine forests. The blackberry fruit I taste on the front of the tongue immediately transitions into a conveyor belt of sensations. Its medium-bodied tannic structure delivers high notes of vanilla and low notes of dark chocolate, and it finishes with the softness of milk chocolate—which would potentially be cloying, except it’s offset by some herbal high notes (maybe cumin?). This is a fabulously sophisticated wine. The mouthfeel reminds me of a Médoc from a good vintage year, but it’s sensorium is like no other Cab I’ve had. Really really lovely and unique! I was a fool not to buy a case of this

Upland Vineyard Syrah 2015

Enjoyed this. Had an N. Rhone thing going on, with a littler more smoke/fruit up front. The Viognier added a lot of goodness on the nose & body. — 10 months ago
