The 2007 Reserve is composed of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 11% Petit Verdot, and 9% Cabernet Franc aged for 23 months in new and seasoned French oak. Deep purple colored, it displays aromas of pain grille, earth notes, espresso, violets, black currant, and blackberry. Dense and rich on the palate with restraint and elegance, this lengthy effort will reward 5-7 years of patience from those who buy it. (JM)
Good deep ruby-red. Cabernet-dominated aromas of currant, red cherry, licorice, graphite and minerals. Juicy, powerful and penetrating, with bright red berry and mineral flavors. With a few minutes in the glass, this blend showed a much plusher texture and a building sweetness without going at all over the top. This very young and refined wine did not knock me out in the early going quite like the 2006 had last year, but it's long on potential and will need another look in seven or eight years. 93+ (ST)
At first blush this reserve seems more oaky, more open and more overtly alcoholic than the just-released Leonetti 2008 Merlot and 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon. After many hours of breathing time it fills in with pretty plummy fruit, toast, caramel, whiffs of smoke, cedar and cigar box, and dry tannins. (PG)
Despite the obvious power, this finishes with a welcome open texture that lets the dark berry, tar, mineral and savory herb flavors emerge untrammeled by much tannins. Polished and round, this has style and real refinement. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. (HS)
