2019 Leonetti Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla Valley, USA (750ml)
The classic 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon from this great estate checks in as 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, and 3% Cabernet Franc. Its dense purple/plum color gives way to a gorgeous nose of blackcurrants, burning embers, new leather, graphite, and tobacco. Rich, full-bodied, and concentrated on the palate, it's one heck of a mouthful of Cabernet that brings classic Washington State structure and grip, beautiful overall balance, and a great finish. It's going to require 4-6 years, if not upward of a decade to hit maturity, and should evolve for 30 years or more. It's brilliant juice. Best After 2026

Ripe currants, plums and suede on the nose. Full-bodied with chewy, fruit soaked tannins. The palate is driven by fresh acidity that carries the dark fruit through the long, satisfying finish. Rich yet toned and focused.Tobacco and melted chocolate. Intense. 89% cabernet sauvignon, 8% petit verdot and 3% cabernet franc. Best after 2026.

Inky depth of color. A classic and timeless Cabernet nose sporting notes of ripe blackberry and marionberry, cassis, dried herbs, olive tapenade, cedar, vanilla, and coffee. The palate is balanced with bright acidity and sings with notes of plum, black cherry and baking spices. The tannins are beautifully elegant in this vintage and the wine rewards with a very soft and long finish.
