Walla Walla, Washington
How could Gary Figgins have had any inkling of the success his winery would have when he first started back in 1977?
Located in Walla Walla, made by Chris Figgins and a benchmark estate, Leonetti Cellars produces seriously rich efforts that have a perfect blend of power and finesse, with gorgeously managed tannin, seamless textures and awesome purity.
Leonetti is Washington's States "Top of the Top Grand Cru's" and when you compare with other King Player regions like Napa, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Piedmont, Tuscany-the prices are still incredibly reasonable.

Leonetti 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla $120.00
Impenetrably dark. An explosive nose of coffee, red and black fruits, Russian sage, and garden herbs. Lesser notes follow of crème cassis, currant, and black olive. On the palate, the wine is dense, sweet, and broodingly dark. Simply perfect ne-grained tannins melded with laser-focused acidity deliver impressive length that lingers on the palate. Winery notes
Leonetti 2015 Merlot Walla Walla $100.00
This 100% Merlot pours inky into the glass. The nose is deep and intricate with top note orals lifting it higher as it opens. Tightly focused, the wine saturates the palate with dense blue and black fruits that linger endlessly. An immensely pleasurable wine, it possesses all the attributes that make Walla Walla one of the world’s premier places to grow Merlot. Winery notes
Leonetti 2014 Sangiovese $100.00
Dazzling, dark ruby color. An alluring nose and palate of wet stones, crushed cherries, and ripe strawberries, with lesser notes of sawdust, crème vanilla, elderberries, and roses. The palate is alive with a brilliance and levity that is incredibly refreshing. The tannins are fine-grained with perfect balance and a delightfully satisfying finish. Winery notes
