This 2017 Leonardini Estate wine is a quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon. It begins on the nose with rich, ripe red raspberries, blueberry compote, cassis, graphite, tobacco leaf, tar, and spice box. Its balance and mid-palate are most notable, providing long, plush tannins alongside its dense fruit character. On the palate, it delivers mixed berry pie, black plums, 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.

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.

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.
