2016 Whitehall Tre Leoni Red Blend Napa Valley
Three generations of Leonardini’s (hence Tre Leoni) worked on the creation of the winery’s Tre Leoni red blend, a fun-to-drink, really delicious blend of Cab Sauv, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel. Created with an eye for immediate gratification and excellent service alongside all sorts of foods (and all by itself), it’s a triumph of the blender’s art. It has depth, balance, big flavors and a great price tag. Think cranberries, chocolate-covered cherries, plums, tapenade and vanilla all vying for your attention on a lavish, silky frame that finishes with nice, round tannin.
