Dark as night. An absolutely explosive nose of ripe red and black fruits, licorice, coffee, cassis and pine boughs. Palate is gorgeously plush, rich, dense, long, and loaded with fruit. Tannin is smooth and ripe, finish lasts forever. A very flamboyant yet balanced Cabernet.
Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 4% Carmenere, and 1% Malbec
"This is the best bottling of a very fine lineup from Leonetti. Dense, textural and complex, it showcases exceptional blending of flavors from the addition of just 7% Merlot, 4% Carmenere and 1% Malbec. Notes of plum, cassis, coffee grounds, dark chocolate and a hint of herb run through a complete and engaging finish, retaining both elegance and power. Cellar Selection."
"Smooth and vibrant, this red offers rich blackberry and black tea flavors on a sinewy frame, lingering easily on the expressive finish."
