    July 10, 2014 - Great wine just hitting its stride at 12 years. Opened 4 hours before drinking; helped greatly.

    February 27, 2014 - Probably the best Leonetti wine I have ever had. Beautifully structured, fantastically balanced, and incredibly food friendly. The oak is prominent on the nose, but on the palate it takes a backseat to the fantastic dark fruits, leather, acidity and tannin. It's still quite youthful and only got better with time in the decanter. Amazing wine.

    February 14, 2014 - Excellent but not as good as I expected for an aged reserve wine from this esteemed winery

    November 11, 2013 - Same as my last review, but this bottle was a bit closed off. Perhaps it was the Pop n Pour. Still, this was the only bottle at the table that was empty at the end of the night. Love this wine! If I could afford to, Leonetti would be my consistent "go to" daily drinker.

    October 19, 2013 - Decanted 1 hour. Dark colour. Powerful cassis nose. Well integrated sweet tannins provide a silky smooth entry into cassis, tar & cedar landing with a very subtle hint of dill. Still youthful, it has many years ahead of it
