2012 Leonetti Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1200408 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (1/2018)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark From this great vintage in Washington (using 89% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend) comes lifted aromas of sweetened pipe tobacco, leather, mocha and creme de cassis. Amid its soft texture, the bright acidity of the wine is apparent, combining with unctuous dark fruits and herbal undertones. (OB) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. A real high-pitched essence of Cabernet, offering aromas of black cherry, red berries, bitter chocolate and spices plus a whiff of pungent dried rosemary. Wonderfully deep and sappy wine; more red than black fruit in style and not at all overripe but still darker in character than the Reserve, not to mention more tannic in the early going. This wonderfully aromatic, spicy, bulletproof wine seems set for a long and glorious evolution in bottle. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2015)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This sturdy style sports rich cherry, herb, smoke and spice flavors on a generous, expansive frame. Offers prickly, peppery tannins and displays a welcome integrity, pulling the finish together with presence and class. (HS) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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. *Cellar Selection* (SS) Inner quote mark (11/2015)
