2001 Leonetti Columbia Valley Merlot

SKU #1002791 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 This may be less oaky and more fruit-driven than previous Leonetti Merlots, which means it is more food-ready and probably built for a longer lifetime. The fruit is perfectly ripe, concentrated and spicy with exceptional length and precision. Very young and compact, this is extraordinary Merlot. World class.  (12/2003)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Bright and generous. A lively mouthful of blackberry, currant and floral aromas and flavors, picking up a fresh-earth quality as the finish lingers. Shows less oak than earlier vintages and gorgeous fruit.  (9/2003)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Cedar spices dominate the nose of the 2001 Merlot. A well-structured, medium-bodied wine, it offers loads of blackberry flavors in its broad, lengthy personality. (PR)  (4/2006)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright ruby. Primary aromas of black raspberry, licorice and espresso complemented by sexy oak. Penetrating and intensely flavored, with a tight, sweet kernel of dark fruit flavor. Quite bright and shapely, but really needs another year or so in the bottle to show greater complexity. (ST)  (11/2003)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 No tasting note given.  (10/2003)
