90 PointsWine Enthusiast

Black cherry cordial, fresh blackberries, strawberry rhubarb pie, mocha, cedar, dark chocolate, and a hint of graphite on the nose.  The palate is bursting with mixed berry compote, blackberry jam, cacao bean, and toasted walnuts on the finish.  This wine has great texture that ultimately finishes with round, silky smooth tannins.  A ferociously fun blend with depth, balance and big flavors.  You'll want a box of this around to keep everyone's glass topped up.

Enjoy with your next barbecue or gatherings with family and friends.

WINEMAKING

Three generations of the Leonardini Family (Tre Leoni) are responsible for this expertly made proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Zinfandel. Each grape varietal was fermented and aged as separate lots in French and American oak barrels. Winemaker Jason Moulton tasted through each lot and put the final blend after aging 18 months. The lions share of the wine is Cabernet Sauvignon with equal, lesser percentages of Merlot, and Syrah with a small amount of Zinfandel. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

VINTAGE

The 2017 growing year was picture perfect with warm spring and summer days making optimum conditions for flavor development in every grape cluster. The Merlot and Zinfandel grapes were the first to ripen in mid-September followed by the Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah in late September and mid-October.
