Leonetti Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1998 vintage was a winemakers dream in the Walla Walla Valley. The year was very warm with perfect conditions from bloom to harvest. Yields were naturally low and resulted in wines of incredible intensity, color, and fruit. Our 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon is a very dark wine with an incredible nose consisting of aromatic cedar, anise, black cherry, and balsam. This is a very distinctive wine with a rich, heavy mouth feel. This weighty palate impression is backed by high-quality, fine-grained tannins. Vineyards in this Wine Walla Walla Valley Vineyards (55%) Consisting of: Seven-Hills, Pepper Bridge Farm, Windrow, Leonetti Estate, and Spring Valley Vineyard. Columbia Valley Vineyards (45%), consisting of: Sagemoor Farms (Bacchus Vineyard), and Conner-Lee Vineyard. Blending Detail Cabernet Sauvignon 82%, Merlot 8%, Cabernet Franc 6%, Petit Verdot 4%. A total of 1793 cases were produced.

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.
