LEONETTI CELLAR Merlot 2014

The 2014 Leonetti Merlot is a gorgeous follow-up to the absolutely scintillating 2013. Masculine and brooding, this exceptional Merlot wine has 6% Cabernet Franc blended in. Possessing an ultra deep core, the wine was sourced from the Loess and Mill Creek Upland vineyards and then was aged 15 months in new and once used French oak prior to bottling. The wine opens with aromas of milk chocolate, black cherry, wild blackberry and roasted figs. The wine has deep flavors of black cherry, milk chocolate, blackberry cobbler, anise, crème de cassis, coffee grounds and hints of wintergreen. This can benefit from at least another year in the cellar, as the fruit needs a bit more time to fully integrate. (Best 2017-2032) - September, 2016 (OB)
