Leonetti Cabernet Walla Walla Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Saturated dark ruby to the rim. The 2010 Cabernet has a tremendously pleasing nose of mixed berries, crème 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.

Leonetti Cellar:
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.
