WINEMAKER NOTESOur Leonardini Vineyard Cabernet comes from one of our most prized vineyards and is our namesake. Out of the 12 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on this property this selection became a single vineyard bottling of the highest caliber. The 2018 vintage was a near perfect growing season. Bud break began in late March, leading to a Spring that was mild and dry. Flowering proved to be long and gave way to a healthy set of uniform grape clusters. Summer was also quite warm and long, leading to a cooling effect near the end of the season and into Fall. The consistent summer weather encouraged our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to ripen in mid-September to late October when they were in perfect balance. This 2018 wine was made from hand-selected grapes from our small blocks of clone 8, clone 685, and clone 412 Cabernet Sauvignon in our Leonardini Vineyard.
