Winemaker Notes

Nearly black in the glass. Intricate nose of licorice, lavender, dried herb, cold black coffee mixed with caramel, black fruits, and elderberry. Incredible purity of fruit. Massive, but plush, with a core of mouthwatering acidity and a polished finish.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc

James Suckling
The blackcurrant and blueberry aromas are impressive with hints of mint. Full-bodied, yet tight and composed with plenty of tight, ripe tannins and a flavorful finish. So beautiful to taste now but will pay big dividends in four or five years. Try in 2022.
JD 96
Jeb Dunnuck
The classic 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, and 3% Cabernet Franc that spent 22 months in new, once-used and neutral oak. Its purple/blue color is followed by fabulous notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil, tobacco, and graphite. Deep, rich, and opulent, with a sexy, full-bodied, incredibly pure style, it's already impossible to resist but is going to keep for two decades.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon opens in the glass with a lovely bouquet of crushed blackcurrants, dark plums, mocha and a subtle framing of expensive new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and richly tannic, with good energy to its crunchy core of nicely concentrated fruit and a youthfully chewy, fine-grained finish. The tannic fist of the vintage does make itself felt, but by no means as assertively as in the 2015 Sangiovese. So, while this is never going to be the most elegant vintage of the Leonetti Cabernet Sauvignon, it should reward 2 or 3 years in the cellar and drink well for a decade thereafter.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Refined and impressively built, with blackberry, bay leaf and clove flavors that take on depth and richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2025.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Blended with 12% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, this sophisticated wine shows its pedigree, with cocoa, anise, black tea, mint, black cherry, dried herb, bittersweet chocolate and flower aromas. The fruit seems ever so slightly dried out, with surprisingly restrained flavors, considering the warmth of the vintage, and a tight core of tannin that needs time to unwind. Red and black fruit flavors linger effortlessly on the finish. Best after 2025.

Walla Walla Valley Wine

Columbia Valley, Washington

View all products

Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers.

The Walla Walla Valley, a Native American name meaning “many waters,” is located in southeastern Washington; part of the appellation actually extends into Oregon. Soils here are well-drained, sandy loess over Missoula Flood deposits and fractured basalt.

It is a region perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of red berry, black olive, smoke and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create a range of styles from smooth and supple to robust and well-structured. White varieties are rare but some producers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon, resulting in a rich and round style, and plantings of Viognier, while minimal, are often quite successful.

Of note within Walla Walla, is one new and very peculiar appellation, called the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. This is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries are totally defined by the soil type. Soils here look a bit like those in the acclaimed Rhône region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but are large, ancient, basalt cobblestones. These stones work in the same way as they do in Chateauneuf, absorbing and then radiating the sun's heat up to enhance the ripening of grape clusters. The Rocks District is within the part of Walla Walla that spills over into Oregon and naturally excels in the production of Rhône varieties like Syrah, as well as the Bordeaux varieties.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
