2015 Estate Red Wine
The 2015 Estate Red is among the most compelling I have had a hand in making in my 21 professional vintages at Leonetti and FIGGINS.
Figgins Estate Vineyard is the highest elevation Bordeaux variety vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley. Our position up Mill Creek lends itself to ideal autumn ripening, even in especially warm years like 2015. This vintage was the earliest harvest in our history, but retained a delicious balance between acidity and tannin due in part to the high elevation. This wine is what I imagined our exceptional site to be capable of producing when I bought the land and designed the vineyard over 15 years ago. Rich in color, the wine entices you with an intoxicating nose of baking spices, cherry compote, wild roses, cassis and caramel apple. Layer upon layer of perfectly ripe red and black fruits and silky tannin engage the palate. I have not been this excited about a FIGGINS release since my inaugural vintage in 2008! $85/btl.
