Jean Leon 3055 Merlot - Petit Verdot
When Jean Leon first arrived in New York, he worked as a taxi driver. 3055 was his license number and represents a look at the man behind the legend. The humble beginnings of an idealist who made his dreams come true, to open the most luxurious restaurant in Hollywood, "La Scala", and to produce his own wine. Dark cherry red with medium to deep color intensity. The nose is notable for its highly intense ripe red fruit, spices like black pepper, and hints of aromatic Mediterranean herbs. Sweet on entry, medium-to-full body, and smooth tannins, seamlessly held together by lovely acidity. Long and persistent finish.
