The 1998 vintage was a winemakers dream in the Walla Walla Valley. The year was very warm with perfect conditions from bloom to harvest. Yields were naturally low and resulted in wines of incredible intensity, color, and fruit. A wine with great depth of color, our ’98 Reserve has a nose of rich black fruits, creme brulee, spice, and cream, while maintaining varietal purity. The palate is ultra-rich and mouth-filling, with flavors of black fruits and integrated wood spice. The incredibly long finish is backed by delicious fine-grained, soft tannins, and integrated toasty oak. This wine will likely be remembered as one of the finest Leonetti’s produced to date.
