WHITEHALL LANE CABERNET SAUVIGNON "LEONARDINI ESTATE", NAPA VALLEY 2015
San Francisco Wine Panel
This three vineyard reserve-level blend is plush in fruit and packed with sweet-savory spice. The nose delivers aromas of sweet dark cherry, blueberry, black plum and black currant, wedded to scents of Victorian toffee, dried dark rose, laurel, cedar, clove, five spice, dark pipe tobacco and bitter chocolate. Flavors of Italian Maraschino cherry and bitter chocolate take center-stage in the mouth, along with black currant, black plum, grilled Mission fig and a hint of blueberry. These fruit notes hold lead position through a quietly gripping, palate-coating, lingering finish, where flavors of date, fig, mocha, tobacco and dried herbs lend support. While likely to grow in the cellar over the next decade, it is deliciously satisfying now.
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Leonardini Estate is a little soft spoken and reticent to begin, giving up subtle notes of crushed red and black currants, kirsch and wild blueberries with wafts of cedar chest, wild thyme, tilled soil and iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a compelling quiet intensity, with firm, ripe, grainy tannins and lovely freshness supporting the crushed red and black berry layers, finishing on a persistent mineral note.
