Winemaker Notes

Exceptionally dark. Beautifully complex, sultry nose of dark fruits, including plum and cassis with dried herbs —predominantly rosemary and sage — with complementary notes of earth and tar. The wine has a wonderfully voluptuous texture on the palette and slowly reveals a masculine structure and excellent acidity on its long finish. A simply classic Leonetti Cabernet, reminiscent of the delicious 2008 vintage. 2012 was an exquisitely warm growing season and all of our Cabernet vineyards performed brilliantly.

Critical Acclaim

JD 97
Jeb Dunnuck
A total blockbuster, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley from Leonetti sports an inky color to go with sensational notes of smoked black fruits, scorched earth, licorice, truffle and hints of asphalt. Big, rich, beautifully concentrated, and textured, it doesn't make any apologies for flavor and is a straight up sensational Cabernet to drink over the coming 2-3 decades.
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon is similar to the Reserve, yet slightly more elegant and streamlined at present. Made from 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot that spent 22 month in new and once-used French oak, it exhibits terrific aromatics of leafy herbs, spring flowers, violets, lead pencil shavings and ample cassis and black raspberry-style fruit. Full-bodied, seamless and perfectly balanced, with a stacked mid-palate and building tannin, it’s another candidate for short-term cellaring and will have 2-3 decades of overall longevity.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
This sturdy style sports rich cherry, herb, smoke and spice flavors on a generous, expansive frame. Offers prickly, peppery tannins. Best from 2018 through 2025.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This wine dazzles with detailed aromas of black currant, plum, herbs, cassis and earth along with barrel accents. The palate is wound up tightly at present but still accessible with layered, seamless fruit flavors along with a lengthy finish. It will be best enjoyed from 2022–2030. Cellar Selection.
