This is the first Leonardini Vineyard Merlot since the famed 1997 vintage. For the last 12 years, the Merlot fruit from this small block was designated for different Whitehall Lane blends. This truly is a Merlot for Cabernet lovers. This inky, dark wine has deep, rich aromas and flavors of black cherry, plum and incense. This classic Merlot will continue to evolve through 2020 with proper cellaring.
