Leonetti Cellar 2016 Mill Creek Upland Red (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

Cellar Selection

This is the inaugural designated wine from this vineyard, a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Petit Verdot. It's from the winery's highest elevation site, and the aromas are locked up out of the gate, opening to reveal notes of scorched earth, black cherry, espresso, butter, dark raspberry, violet and dried herbs. The palate is packed to the brim with rich fruit flavors, supported by firm but polished tannins and brightened by lively acidity. It's a flat-out gorgeous wine with a very long life ahead of it. Best from 2028–2034. Sean P. Sullivan
