Winemaker's Notes

A very dark wine, our '97 Cabernet Sauvignon - Columbia Valley has a beautiful high-tone nose of cassis, mint, leather, and cedar shavings. This elegantly styled, balanced wine is rich, soft, and complex, with an extremely long finish of fruit and oak spice and fine-grained tannins. A compelling Leonetti Cabernet Sauvignon from a great vintage.

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 86.1%, Cabernet Franc 6.7%, Merlot 3.9%, Petit Verdot 3.3%

Critical Acclaim

"Saturated ruby color. Black cherry, black raspberry, smoky oak and tobacco on the nose. Fat, sweet and sappy; fully ripe black fruit flavors fill the mouth. Not a huge wine but lush and accessible. Even tannins are buried in fruit. Few Washington winemakers have thus far produced cabernet with texture so suave or tannins so fine."
91 Points

"Ripe and clear, with nicely focused blackberry and currant flavors and a trademark thread of spice and vanilla, nicely subdued. Fine-grained tannins don't get in the way, letting the lovely fruit flavors emerge generously."
