2020 Leopoldina Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 2020 Leopoldina is a deeply layered wine, and one that fascinates with wonderfully balanced yet perfectly contrasting elements of lift and opulence. Aromatics of Boysenberry mousse, and purity of black berries command attention. Athletic sinew melds with a pronounced dark Bing cherries, wild blackberries and hints of garrigue. Freshness and ripeness persist throughtout, highlighting an intrinsic lifted opulence that carries through the finish.
praise for 2020 leopoldina vineyard cabernet sauvignon
“Situated in eastern Oakville, with a generally western exposition and reddish volcanic soils, the Leopoldina Vineyard has yielded a wonderfully perfumed 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Leopoldina Vineyard. It's almost floral, marked by great freshness and verve, tart black cherries and a touch of cassis on the nose, while the palate is medium to full-bodied, streamlined and remarkably elegant. It's not the biggest, most expansive wine you'll find on the eastern side of the valley, but it exhibits a fine sense of balance, adding a hint of licorice on the finish.”
“The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Leopoldina Vineyard is a beauty. Giving up lots of perfumed blue fruits, violets, flowers, and chocolate, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, has ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish. It’s another rock-solid 2020 from this estate that’s well worth buying.”
“Rich, sweet blackberries, creme de cassis and chocolate on the nose. Rich, juicy and flavorful, with some generous fruit-sweetness on the palate. Dusty tannins. Drink now or hold.”
