October 13, 2014 - Decanted about 3 hours. Nice ruby to blackish in color. Nose was very expressive of classic cab, black fruit, some mocha/choc. Palate was classically super smooth Leonetti. Mouthcoating front to back with beautiful plum, a little bit of red berries and some minerality that finished clean.

November 23, 2013 - I got a stellar deal on a six pack and wanted to try one to make sure it was not corked. This is still a baby. The structure and texture are luscious. Wonderful fruit and a deep garnet color. Even though decanted and drank over a four hour period, there was still a little tannic taste due to its youth. This needs another 5 years minimum in the cellar and then expect and amazing wine.2 people found this helpful Comment

(Leonetti Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley) An aromatically compelling, complex wine with seductive aromatics of sage and other herbal notes, earth, high-toned black cherry, red fruit, roasted espresso bean, and whiffs of licorice. Rich and broad on the palate without being weighty with incredibly pure, focused, fruit flavors. The tannin integration is beyond exceptional. Hangs and hangs on the finish. A beautiful expression of Cabernet Sauvignon. Give two plus years. 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 4% Carmenère, 3% Malbec. Mill Creek Upland, Loess, and Seven Hills vineyard. Aged 22 months in new and neutral French oak. 14.6% alcohol. 2,980 cases produced. Sample provided by winery.
