    May 13, 2024 - Nose needed a few minutes to blow off some funk.
    Then, cassis, hints of spice, leathery tobacco, At 2 hours open it doesn’t seem fully resolved.

    Palate is silky but structured. Dark, tannic, a little chewy, long finish.

    Well made, qpr is a little rich.

    March 31, 2024 - Dark fruit, spice, and just a hint of menthol. Fully resolved, with secondary and tertiary notes emerging. Very good now, I think this has plenty of time left but not sure if it will get much better. Drink or hold.

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    9/21/2011 (link) ***** points

    (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.
