Winery Notes:

This 2016 Leonardini Estate wine is a quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon. It begins on the nose with rich, dark black fruits, blueberries, blackberry bon bons, cassis, fragrant violets, tobacco leaf, and baking spices. Its balance and mid-palate are most notable, providing long, plush tannins alongside its dense fruit character. On the palate, it delivers baked berry crisp, black and red fruits, toasted walnuts, brioche, pencil shavings, and cedar on the finish. The beautiful underlying tannin structure, complexity, and ample fruit will evolve over time and age gracefully for 15-20 years.

This has an intriguing mix of loganberry, plum and açaí berry fruit flavors stitched together with hints of warm mocha, tar, tobacco and melted licorice. The long, lush finish will have lots of fans. Drink now through 2030. 1,076 cases made.

Tons of bright berries and plums with just a hint of bitter chocolate, making this full-bodied yet fresh Napa cabernet sauvignon very impressive. I love the succulence of the long finish. Where is that steak with forest mushrooms?

A broad, fleshy and lengthy wine, 100% varietal, this wine is dark and brooding in black cherry and cassis, with complementary accents of crushed rock and cocoa powder. Toasted oak and vanilla round out the plush finish.

A barrel sample, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Leonardini Estate is opaque garnet-purple in color and opens with notes of warm cassis, espresso, fried herbs and cigars with a waft of roasted nuts. The palate is full-bodied, firm and chewy with good concentration if straightforward, finishing with good length.
