proper Cellaring recommendations
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is made to age for 20 - 30 years in your cellar. Of course, there are some vintage-to-vintage variations to this recommendation. Wine should be stored horizontally at 55 - 57 degrees in a vibration and light free environment.

Dense, saturated color. The initial nose is blueberry compote, black berries, and a whiff of pine resin and sawdust behind the classic cabernet note of cassis. As I taste an open bottle over several days, the wine changes dramatically, with additional layers of aromas, including tobacco, more black fruits, and vanilla revealing themselves. I'm always pleased when a wine does this, as it's a wonderful harbinger that it will continue to gain complexity in bottle for years to come. The palate of this cab is just gorgeous, with a lush, mouth-coating texture. The tannin content is high, but they are very ripe, fine-grained, and long. The wine finishes with an endless glycerin sweetness in which Leonetti wines are known.
