2019 Leonardini Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 1.5L
This 2019 Leonardini Estate wine is a quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon Bordeaux blend! This is the first time we have used all five Bordeaux varieties to make the final blend of the Leonardini Estate. It begins on the nose with black cherry cola, red currants, caramel, licorice, black peppercorn, and a hint of lavender. Its balance and mid-palate are most notable, providing long, plush tannins alongside its dense fruit character. On the palate, it delivers soft red raspberries, redolent cherries, brown sugar, cherry cobbler crisp, vanilla bean, and nutmeg. The beautiful underlying tannin structure, complexity, and ample fruit will evolve over time and age gracefully for 15-20 years.
