98 Points - limited Leonetti makes one of Washington State's best Cabernets. Limited. 98 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The Leonetti 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec, and 2% Merlot that spent 22 months in 75% new French oak. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a sensational, full-bodied, layered wine that's overflowing with notions of crème de cassis, crushed rocks, smoked tobacco, and hints of camphor. Seamless, elegant, and layered, yet also powerful, it rates with the top wines of the vintage. Readers should snatch this beauty up." 96 points James Suckling: "Yum. The Leonetti 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon shows intense blackberries, blueberries and spice. Medium-to full-bodied and spicy. Cedar and smoked almonds, too. The tannins are firm and chewy, yet polished. A blend of 86% cabernet sauvignon, 8% merlot, 5% malbec and 1% petit verdot. Needs a year or three to soften. Drink or hold."
Definitely young but quite accessible with an hour of air. Delish Washington fruit, silky tannin.
