LEONETTI CELLAR Merlot 2015

The 2015 Leonetti Cellar Merlot was sourced from the old block at the Leonetti Estate and the Loess Vineyard. The wine was aged for 15 months in new and once used French oak prior to bottling. Exceedingly dark and brooding aromatics show black cherries, black olive and sage accents with crème de cassis. The mouthfeel is gorgeous, layered with concentrated flavors of mocha, black cherry compote, Kalamata olive, mint, white pepper and milk chocolate. This displays impressive weight and structure, considering the heat of the vintage. While this is simply decadent right now, this age worthy Merlot will certainly become even more appealing as it softens and evolves with some additional bottle age.
