Leonetti Cabernet Sauvignon 1994
Blend: 80% Cabernet sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc
A deep-pile, plush carpet of a Cabernet, from Washington, this is smooth and velvety, with layer upon layer of juicy blackberry, prune, plum, spice and vanilla flavors that linger beautifully and get richer with each sip.
The bright ruby-colored 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon has beguiling aromas of cassis jam and vanilla cream. This beautifully ripe wine is explosive, chewy, medium-to-full-bodied, and hedonistic. Its flavor profile, filled with candied black raspberries, cherries, coconut, and caramel, represents liquid decadence. More decadent than intellectual, it will take tasters to levels of pleasure rarely attained.
