proper Cellaring recommendations
Our Reserve 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.

Impossibly complex, mysterious nose that reveals itself over time. Cassis liqueur and floral notes open to a bowl of fresh crushed ripe fruit sprinkled with cinnamon and notes of cedar and coffee. A bigger wine than the cab, it is tight as a drum as I write this, but continues to open beautifully even a week after uncorking! This is a wine of immediate gratification, yet it possesses amazing aging potential. In the mouth, the wine is loaded with dense ripe fruit, long and balanced, with tannin and acid in perfect harmony. I really feel this wine will stand proudly next to the world’s finest Bordeauxs upon release, but especially in 10–15 years—if you can keep your hands off of it! Leonetti Reserve is our finest effort. It is crafted from our finest blends, finest barrels, and finest vineyards.
