Leonetti Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||United States, Washington, Walla Walla Valley|
Blackcurrants, black raspberries, graphite, leafy herbs and even a hint of bay leaf all emerge from the 2014 Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon, and it's deep, rich and beautifully concentrated in the vintage. Made from 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot and 8% Merlot, it opens up nicely with time in the glass, has ample tannin structure and a great finish. Give bottles short term cellaring and enjoy through 2034.
Cellar Selection. This wine is a blend of fruit from Seven Hills, Loess, Mill Creek Upland, Leonetti Old Block and Serra Pedace. Aromas of mineral, black cherry, incense, barrel spice and scorched earth lead to a full-bodied textured palate full of black-fruit flavors and tightly wound tannins. It drinks quite young now, needing some time to come into its own. Best from 2024-2029.
Collectibles. Well-structured, yet rich and polished, with rose petal and blackberry aromas and complex flavors of briary wild berry, licorice and pepper that linger toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025. 2,869 cases made.
