Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 11% Malbec and 2% Merlot.

The best barrels from an entire vintage earn the right to become part of the Leonetti Reserve blend, which is simply our finest effort every year we produce it. This year all three of our estate vineyards had shining stars that contributed to the blend. For the first time, Malbec from Loess Vineyard makes an appearance. Thsi year's Reserve is once again just monumental. While still tight today (as you'd expect at this young age), the nose has a beautiful medley of plums and black fruits, blackberry puree, very ripe bloddy bing cherries, dried rose petals and a whiff of smoke and cedar. While being very big, dense and long in the finish, the palate impression is perfectly balanced and plush, with an incredible glycerin mouthfeel. I'm terrifically proud of this wine, and confident you will agree it stands comfortably amongst the finest Bordeaux-varietal red wines in the world.
