Three Bottles of Leonetti Cellars Merlot
Seductive for its balance, with ripe flavor and gentle texture, the 1999 Leonetti Cellars Merlot received 92 rating points by Wine Spectator. Firm tannins support lively berry and currant fruit, which echo beautifully on the finish, along with subtle shadings of black pepper and cedar. The fruit prevails and just sings on. The wine has been stored in a passive wine cellar since purchase directly from the winery. Cheers!
