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.
Deep red color with a purplish edge. Very opaque and dense
Ripe red fruit, black pepper, toasty notes
Sweet entry, moderately firm structure, smooth tannins, echoes of fruit, long and persistent finish
Merlot and Petit Verdot
Fermentation and maceration at controlled temperatures
Pairs well with both fish and meat. Excellent match for cod in a tomato-veggie pisto sauce.
