2005 Leonetti Cellar Reserve Walla Walla Valley
Red Bordeaux Blend
- Columbia Valley
- Walla Walla Valley
Community Tasting Notes 22
March 31, 2017 - This bottle was great. It received a full decanting and then was enjoyed leisurely. It was still youthful, dark in color and had a good balance of Bordeaux style fruit, tannins and the signature Leonetti oak. Wish I had more of this vintage.

January 7, 2017 - Inviting nose of menthol,oak and cherries leads to fresh blackberry and blueberry fruit flavors with a bit of vanilla and oak on the finish. Still fresh, young and tannic, this bottle was in very good shape, continuing to open up and evolve over several hours.

November 29, 2016 - Very nice. Full flavor but not overly big. On the younger side still but very drinkable. Overall, very well balanced.

April 22, 2016 - Outstanding. Drinking wonderfully right now. Rich and powerful with dark berry, ripe plum fruit and a burnt cedar smoky layer. Gives way to a sweet white chocolate finish. Tannins still on the gritty side but the overall length and silky mouthfeel is wonderful. Great example of how good Washington Bordeaux style blends can be.
