Drinking marvelously at seven years of age, the 2012 Leonetti Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon is an extremely strong showing from this energetic vintage in Washington. One in the glass the wine unveils highly perfumed aromatics of pipe tobacco, leather, Turkish coffee and shades of creme de cassis. The mouthfeel and texture here delights the senses as the Cabernet impresses with rich dark fruit flavors with earthy undertones that are wrapped around with toasty oak. Decadent, yet highly elegant, this stunning wine will cellar well for another fifteen years. Drink 2019-2035- 95

Celebrating RoAnne’s home coming after 11 years in Europe. A rich, intense, multi layered Cab. Dark fruit with hints of black berry and tart fig, laced with soft cigar box tannin and warm rich spice from French oak.

It's like a top modern Bordeaux morphed with a top Napa Cab. Dark berries, tar, ash, cocoa. Awesome long finish. Great now and spectacular in a few years.

Deep purple coloration. On the nose, blackberry, vanilla, citrus peel and cassis. On the palate, full body, velvety smooth, cassis, blackberry, vanilla and strong tannins. Great wine that will benefit with a few more years ageing.
