Leonetti Cellar Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$112.99

Leonetti makes one of Washington State's best Cabernets. Limited.96 points Robert Parker:  "Also from barrel sample, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up knockout creme de cassis, scorched earth, lead pencil and burning ember-like qualities to go with a full-bodied, decadently textured profile on the palate. Possessing plenty of sweet tannin and ample concentration, it stays remarkably graceful and elegant on the palate. It will evolve nicely for two decade or more." 94 points Wine Spectator:  "This sturdy style sports rich cherry, herb, smoke and spice flavors on a generous, expansive frame. Offers prickly, peppery tannins. Best from 2018 through 2025."

Drinking marvelously at seven years of age, the 2012 Leonetti Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon is an extremely strong showing from this energetic vintage in Washington. One in the glass the wine unveils highly perfumed aromatics of pipe tobacco, leather, Turkish coffee and shades of creme de cassis. The mouthfeel and texture here delights the senses as the Cabernet impresses with rich dark fruit flavors with earthy undertones that are wrapped around with toasty oak. Decadent, yet highly elegant, this stunning wine will cellar well for another fifteen years. Drink 2019-2035- 95

Celebrating RoAnne’s home coming after 11 years in Europe. A rich, intense, multi layered Cab. Dark fruit with hints of black berry and tart fig, laced with soft cigar box tannin and warm rich spice from French oak.

It's like a top modern Bordeaux morphed with a top Napa Cab. Dark berries, tar, ash, cocoa. Awesome long finish. Great now and spectacular in a few years.
