1998 Leonetti - Merlot Columbia Valley
Wine Spectator: 93 Points
"Firm, flavorful and distinctly spicy, with cinnamon and nutmeg overtones to the yummy, focused black currant and blackberry flavors. A racy red with great style and depth. Fine-grained tannins can use cellaring. Best from 2002 through 2008. 1,920 cases made."

"Here again the 1998 vintage shows its forward, fat, fruity, lip-smackingly luscious qualities right out in front. This is a meaty, oaky Cab, with firm, tongue-lashing tannins, plenty of red berry/cassis fruit and a power-packed profile from top to bottom. It's delicious and strong, with coffee, bitter chocolate and licorice lining the extended finish. Ideally, you?ll give it about two more years of cellar time and then go for it."
