This 2016 Leonardini Vineyard is a powerful example of Cabernet Sauvignon. It begins on the nose with fragrant dark cherry, candied blackberries, violets, cassis, dark chocolate, and toasted croissant.  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, baked blackberry crisp, toasted walnuts, crème de cassis, mixed berry jam, and cedar on the finish. The beautiful underlying tannin structure, complexity, and ample fruit will evolve over time and age gracefully for 10-15 years.
