97 points Wine Advocate: On another level, the 2010 Estate Red Wine is something to behold! A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon – yet with smaller portions of Merlot and Petit Verdot – aged in 75% new and 25% 1-year-old French oak barrels for 20 months, it has a decidedly dark fruit profile with Pauillac-like aromas of black raspberry, creme de cassis, coffee bean, graphite, mineral and toasted bread all emerging from the glass. Deep, rich and layered, with a full-bodied, concentrated and structured feel on the palate, it fleshes out beautifully with air and is up there with the creme de la creme of the vintage and region. It needs 2-3 years of bottle age (or more) and will have 20-25 years of evolution. Drink 2016-2035. Coming from an estate vineyard that’s located on the eastern edge of the Walla Walla Valley, off of Mill Creek Road and at an elevation of roughly 1,750 feet, these wines are made by Chris Figgins (of Leonetti) and show classic profiles. As the score suggests, this is one producer not to miss!

Previous vintage tasting notes:

Wine Enthusiast 98 Points: The second release of Figgins - a single wine produced by Leonetti’s Chris Figgins - is astonishing. Tasted in a lineup of exceptional Walla Walla reds, it outshined them all. It’s a sophisticated blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot, from the Figgins Vineyard, with gorgeous aromas of flowers, spices and black fruits. Seamless and long, complex and forceful without being overpowering, it can stand alongside top tier Bordeaux costing four or five times as much. - Paul Gregutt

below, Chris Figgins

The 2009 vintage favored cooler sites in the Walla Walla Valley, and Figgins Estate, perched at 1500-1750’, is showing its ability to ripen fruit, yet remain remarkably fresh and provide balanced acidity in even the warmest of years. The wine shows beautiful dark ruby color to the rim. It exhibits an incredible purity of black and blue fruits, speckled with a potpourri of heirloom rose petals, earth and balsa wood. On the palate the wine has massive amounts of sumptuous fruit as if derived from a berry compote reduction, incredible length, cleansing acidity, and an absolutely seamless finish.

2008 Vintage

Luxuriously plush, this stately red opens with gorgeous aromas of black fruit, exotic spice, cherry blossom, and desert herbs. It's dense and rich while maintaining Leonetti-esque elegance with cassis, black cherry, and black berry layers providing a velvety cascade. It is surprisingly delicious right now but will be in its prime with 4-5 years in the cellar. - Avalon

Wine Advocate 94 Points: The 2008 Figgins Estate Red Wine is the inaugural release of a wine made by Chris Figgins, son of Leonetti Cellar founder, Gary Figgins. The fruit was sourced from the Figgins Estate Vineyard which is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Merlot. The wine was aged in 70% new French oak for 22 months before bottling without fining or filtration. A total of 831 cases were produced. Sandalwood, exotic spices, sage, cherry blossom, cassis, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of a dense, rich, elegant, beautifully proportioned wine that has enough ripe, fine-grained tannin to blossom for another 4-5 years. It offers a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2023, perhaps longer. All in all, not a bad debut.

Wine Spectator 93 points: Broad and generous, offering a supple mouthful of mineral-accented blackberry, cherry and mint flavors, mingling effectively on the polished finish. Offers depth and refinement. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2018. 831 cases made.
