2015 Leonetti Cellar Walla Walla Reserve
Cépage: Cabernet Sauvignon (63%); Malbec (29%); Merlot (8%)
Size: 750 ml
Rating(s): 95 (RP)
" Quite different in profile to the Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Walla Walla Reserve offers up a rich bouquet of ripe blackberries, pencil shavings, cardamom and sweet soil. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and lavishly textured, with an ample core of fruit that initially conceals its firm chassis of abundant structuring tannins. Those tannins, however, assert themselves on the chewy, richly fruity finish, so this bottling will require 3 or 4 years of patience."
