Leonetti winemaker Chris Figgins has crafted another stunning wine with this 2015 'Reserve' Red. Figgins has assembled this wine from what he considers to be the best barrels of the best lots at Leonetti Cellar and the final composition is composed of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Malbec and 8% Merlot. The result is a simply outstanding wine which beings with wonderful aromaics of blueberry compote, blackberry preserves, mocha and crème de cassis with secondary nuances of black tea and pipe tobacco adding further complexity. The rich texture is truly outstanding, as concentrated flavors of blackberry compote, blueberry cordial, mocha, crème de cassis and anise beautifully envelope the palate. Ultra-rich, yet balanced, this is another truly outstanding effort from Leonetti Cellar and while it is already completely captivating, it will be best to allow it at least two more years of bottle age to fully reach its drinking potential.
