Leonetti Cabernet Walla Walla Valley 2007
Our Cabernet is very dark to the rim and has a complex aroma of cinnamon toast, red and black fruits, Christmas spices, nutmeg, coffee, and a hint of gun powder. Every time I go back to the glass I seem to find something new. On the palate it has very long, fine-grained, slightly chalky tannins, perfect acid balance, and a beautiful glycerin feeling that gives it tremendous length in its finish.

Each of our vineyard solis shape the wine that comes from it. This is the essence of terroir. The soil of Seven Hills at the south end of the Valley is Ellisford Silt Loam.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Food Pairings for Leonetti Cabernet Walla Walla Valley
Dense, saturated color. The initial nose is blueberry compote, blackberries, and a whiff of pine resin and sawdust behind the classic cabernet note of cassis. As I taste an open bottle over several days, the wine changes dramatically, with additional layers of aromas, including tobacco, more black fruits, and vanilla revealing themselves. I'm always pleased when a wine does this, as it's a wonderful harbinger that it will continue to gain complexity in bottle for years to come. The palate of this cab is just gorgeous, with a lush, mouth-coating texture. The tannin content is high but the tannins are very ripe, fine-grained, and long. The wine finishes with an endless glycerin sweetness for which Leonetti wines are known.
