More serious, edgy and structured, the spectacular 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 4% Carmenere that spent 22 months in new and neutral French oak. Layered, pure and complex, with ethereal spice-laced black currant and blackberry fruit, singed herbs, coffee and floral notes on the nose, this full-bodied, impeccably balanced 2010 has phenomenal purity of fruit, a great mid-palate and masses of finely polished, perfectly ripe tannin that coat the palate. Brilliant on all accounts, it will live to see its 25th birthday in fine form. Drink now-2035. Located in Walla Walla, made by Chris Figgins and a benchmark estate, Leonetti Cellars produces seriously rich efforts that have a perfect blend of power and finesse, with gorgeously managed tannin, seamless textures and awesome purity.

(includes 12% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 4% Carmenere): Good dark ruby-red. Cassis, blackberry, menthol and milk chocolate on the varietally expressive nose. Large-scaled and powerful, but with an extraordinarily silky texture and outstanding spicy lift to the deep flavors of dark berries, coffee, spices and minerals. Wonderfully long and perfumed, finishing with outstanding breadth, great saline precision and toothcoating tannins that are not a bit aggressive. A baby today, but balanced from day one. (ST) 95+
All Leonetti wines are 100% estate-grown fruit, mixing Seven Hills, Mill Creek Upland and Loess vineyard grapes. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon includes 12% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 4% Carmenère in the blend. Young and chewy, with a hint of herbaceousness, this shows lovely balance and a mix of raspberry, black cherry, cassis, coffee and cacao. It’s a young, deep and powerful wine that will certainly reward cellaring. *Cellar Selection* (PG)
Another 2010 Walla Walla wine for which the predominant note is ‘potential.’ Dark currant and mocha scents are given a gentle kneading from a calfskin glove. The flavors feel poised but hardly ready, with a dusty earthiness and grip on the back end. For all that, it feels like a complete wine in the wings. Cellar.
