Leonetti Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


SKU DB7300-12


Exceptionally dark. Beautifully complex, sultry nose of dark fruits, including plum and cassis with dried herbs - predominantly rosemary and sage - with complementary notes of earth and tar. The wine has a wonderfully voluptuous texture on the palette and slowly reveals a masculine structure and excellent acidity on its long finish. A simply classic Leonetti Cabernet, reminiscent of the delicious 2008 vintage. 2012 was an exquisitely warm growing season and all of our Cabernet vineyards performed brilliantly.

Wine AdvocateAlso from barrel sample, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up knockout creme de cassis, scorched earth, lead pencil and burning ember-like qualities to go with a full-bodied, decadently textured profile on the palate. Possessing plenty of sweet tannin and ample concentration, it stays remarkably graceful and elegant on the palate. It will evolve nicely for two decade or more.

Wine SpectatorThis sturdy style sports rich cherry, herb, smoke and spice flavors on a generous, expansive frame. Offers prickly, peppery tannins and displays a welcome integrity, pulling the finish together with presence and class. Best from 2018 through 2025. 2,900 cases made.
