This 2020 Leonardini Vineyard is an elegant example of Cabernet Sauvignon from this stunning St. Helena AVA location. It begins on the nose with brambly fruits and blueberry cobbler, moving into crème de cassis, spicebox, sarsaprilla and a touch of cedar. Its balance and mid-palate are most notable, providing long, plush tannins alongside its dense fruit character. On the palate, it delivers rich sweet black fruits, fresh blueberries, cherry cola, vanillin and toasted walnuts. The beautiful underlying tannin structure, complexity and ample fruit will evolve over time and age gracefully for 10-15 years.
