    Winemaker's Notes:

    Saturated dark ruby to the rim. The 2010 Cabernet has a tremendously pleasing nose of mixed berries, creme brulee, cassis, baking spices, and cinnamon. There is truly an exceptional purity to the nose that makes me close my eyes when I place my nose inside to focus on this chimera in a glass. The palate is tightly wound yet plush, having simply perfect balance and length. There is a lot of ripe tannin here, but not a rough edge to be found. After 5 days open, the wine continues to develop and display remarkable purity of fruit.

    Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 4% Carmenere

    Critical Acclaim:

    More serious, edgy and structured, the spectacular 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 4% Carmenere that spent 22 months in new and neutral French oak. Layered, pure and complex, with ethereal spice-laced black currant and blackberry fruit, singed herbs, coffee and floral notes on the nose, this full-bodied, impeccably balanced 2010 has phenomenal purity of fruit, a great mid-palate and masses of finely polished, perfectly ripe tannin that coat the palate. Brilliant on all accounts, it will live to see its 25th birthday in fine form. Drink now-2035.

    All Leonetti wines are 100% estate-grown fruit, mixing Seven Hills, Mill Creek Upland and Loess vineyard grapes. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon includes 12% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 4% Carmenère in the blend. Young and chewy, with a hint of herbaceousness, this shows lovely balance and a mix of raspberry, black cherry, cassis, coffee and cacao. It’s a young, deep and powerful wine that will certainly reward cellaring. Cellar Selection.

    Another 2010 Walla Walla wine for which the predominant note is ‘potential.’ Dark currant and mocha scents are given a gentle kneading from a calfskin glove. The flavors feel poised but hardly ready, with a dusty earthiness and grip on the back end. For all that, it feels like a complete wine in the wings.
