Product Description

The impenetrably dark 2014 Leonetti Cabernet Sauvignon offers an explosive nose of coffee, red and black fruits, sage, and garden herbs. Lesser notes follow of creme de cassis, currant, and black olive. On the palate, the wine is dense, sweet, and broodingly dark. Simply perfect fine-grained tannins melded with laser-focused acidity deliver impressive length that lingers on the palate.

Varietal Composition: 81 Cabernet Sauvignon, 11 Petit Verdot, 8 Merlot
Appellation:  Walla Walla Valley AVA
Aging: 22 months in new and once filled French oak barrels, and neutral oval botti

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"Blackcurrants, black raspberries, graphite, leafy herbs and even a hint of bay leaf all emerge from the 2014 Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon, and it's deep, rich and beautifully concentrated in the vintage. Made from 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot and 8% Merlot, it opens up nicely with time in the glass, has ample tannin structure and a great finish. Give bottles short term cellaring and enjoy through 2034." -JD, 6/30/17

94 Points - Vinous Media
"Bright, deep ruby-red. Less precise on the nose than the Cabernet Sauvignon but riper, offering scents of cassis, black cherry and brambly purple berries complicated by a note of licorice pastille. Wonderfully creamy in the middle, showing more obvious fruit than the Cabernet but with lovely framing energy. Finishes very strong and long, with fully ripe, suave, slowly mounting tannins saturating the entire palate. Figgins included a bit of young-vines fruit from his steep, high-density Serra Pedace planting on rocky soil at 1,450 feet at SeVein. On first taste, this wine impressed with its plushness but it quickly closed down in the glass. It should be long-lived. Figgins noted that some Cabernet Franc can make it into this blend in cool years, but not in 2014." -ST, 10/2017

93 Points, "Collectibles" - Wine Spectator
"Well-structured, yet rich and polished, with rose petal and blackberry aromas and complex flavors of briary wild berry, licorice and pepper that linger toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025. 2,869 cases made." -TF, 7/31/17

93 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"This wine is a blend of fruit from Seven Hills, Loess, Mill Creek Upland, Leonetti Old Block and Serra Pedace. Aromas of mineral, black cherry, incense, barrel spice and scorched earth lead to a full-bodied textured palate full of black-fruit flavors and tightly wound tannins. It drinks quite young now, needing some time to come into its own. Best from 2024–2029." -SS, 9/1/17
