Buy Leonetti Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon
Seductive color saturation to the rim. The nose on the Cabernet Sauvignon captures what makes this one of the world’s finest wine grapes—it is an exotic array of spices, dried herbs, lavender, charcuterie, mocha, cassis, vanilla, and ripe red and black fruits. In the very distant background there is a lovely note of mint. The wine has incredible density, with very ripe tannin that is suave on the palate. The finish is ultra long and pleasant. This wine is distinctively Walla Walla and why our valley is becoming an international focal point for Cabernet.
Wine & Spirits 94 points - Dense with tannins, sporting flavors of licorice, blackberry and smoke that push to get through. Finishes tight, but glows with fruit and savory notes on the long aftertaste. Needs significant cellaring. Best after 2014. 2,980 cases made. –HS

Wine Spectator 93 points - The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bigger, more structured wine. Dense, layered, and with a suave personality, it will continue to blossom for another 5-6 years and should see its 20th birthday in fine form.
