A continuation of retrospectives for Vintage Walla Walla weekend.

Starting on January 23rd of this year I opened a special bottle of wine on that date each month leading up to my 40th birthday in May. February’s wine was the 2002 Betz Pere de Famille; March was the 2007 Leonetti Merlot; April was 2002 Cayuse Flying Pig and 2004 Cailloux Syrah. The 2002 Leonetti Cabernet Sauvignon was January’s wine. Long promised. Finally delivered.

Mill Creek Upland, Seven Hills, Pepper Bridge, and Leonetti Estate vineyards. 2,524 cases produced.
