2011 Leonetti Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley

"The most unique of the 2011s barrel samples, with a bright, juicy profile that includes loads of black fruit, citrus, assorted wild herbs and floral qualities, the 2011 Reserve hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied, elegant and balanced mouthfeel, sweet tannin and an overall classy personality. Plush, rounded and layered with fruit, it should drink nicely for over a decade. Drink 2014-2021. 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. While the 2010s here are some of the greatest wines of the vintage, the 2011s are more fresh, up-front and will be approachable at an earlier stage." [+]
