There was no Pepper Bridge or Seven Hills Merlot in the mix in 2004, but this as good as any other Leonetti Merlot, which is to say as good as it gets, aided by the inclusion of Cold Creek vineyard fruit. Soft, lush and beautifully aromatic; it's just lightly dusted with chocolate and hints of spicy herb.
