Darkly brooding aromatics of red and black cassis explode, conveying texture in a remarkable way. Fascinating. A study in texture and structure, this wine is tightly woven, interlaced with density of pure dark fruits and driving passion. Otherworldly in its combination of width and length, the palate is taken to astounding depths that focus and drive through the endless finish. As winemaker Peter Heitz puts it, this is “the Wine of the Vintage.”

praise for 2017 leopoldina vineyard cabernet sauvignon

“The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Leopoldina Vineyard is powerful and heady, with all of the intensity that is typical of this site on the eastern hills of Oakville. Dark, savory and powerful, the 2017 has so much to offer. The balance of intense dark fruit and muscular tannins makes for an absolutely compelling Cabernet.”

—Antonio Galloni, Vinous. 96 Points: Exceptional. A profound and emotionally moving wine that exemplifies the very best attributes of its kind. These are the world’s great, iconic wines


“Lastly, the single vineyard 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Leopoldina Vineyard comes from Oakville. Its saturated purple/black color is followed by a beautiful, full-bodied, concentrated 2017 that has a core of blue fruits as well as notes of liquid violets, graphite, dark chocolate, and scorched earth. It's balanced, firm, and focused, with loads of potential.”

—Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com. 94+ Points: Outstanding wines. These wines are outstanding for their type and are worth the extra effort to seeking out.

 

Well-packed for the vintage, with a deep core of plum, black cherry and anise flavors. Lively bramble, sweet tobacco and roasted apple wood elements fill in on the finish. Offers a solid encore of fruit at the end. Best from 2022 through 2035.”

—James Molesworth, Wine Spectator. 94 Points: Outstanding; a wine of superior character and style.
