    A youthful interpretation of the winery’s most complex reds. Made from Merlot vines planted in our vineyards in 1997 and a small percentage of Petit Verdot, a variety we have been cultivating since 2006. The number 3055 refers to Jean Leon’s New York cab license and reveals the man behind the legend: the humble beginnings of an idealist who achieved his dream of opening the most famous restaurant in Hollywood and creating his own namesake wine.

    A wine characterized by immense freshness and elegance, pronounced notes of red fruit (strawberries, along with peach and banana) and a long aftertaste.
