Vintage: The growing conditions of 2014 were beyond ideal, with lots of sunny warm days and cool nights throughout the Spring and Summer. September was also warm, allowing the fruit to fully ripen with outstanding flavors. 

Wine: The 2014 I de V is made of one of the five red Bordeaux grapes, and that varietal will forever remain a mystery.  The five Bordeaux varietals are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. 

Notes: "This wine looked terrific, with classic graphite, black currant, unsmoked cigar tobacco, pen ink and licorice.  It is full-bodied and fleshy, with oodles of black fruits, a touch of barrique and a long finish.  Drink it over the next 15-20 years." - Robert Parker

Shipping Notes: Due to the delicate nature of this wine, two-day shipping is recommended for all shipments.

Notes: "This looks to be an impressive proprietary blend, with a dense ruby/purple color and loads of spring flowers intermixed with blackberries, cassis, coffee bean, white chocolate and a touch of background oak.  It is lusty, layered, plush, and medium to full-bodied with light tannin.  Drink it over the next 15 or so years." - Robert Parker

BLEND : 100% CABERNET SAUVIGNON

It all began in our Leonardini Vineyard in March 2011 when Mother Nature provided perfect spring weather for bud break and early grape development. The harvest was a challenging time due to weather, but Dean and his staff picked at the right time, and this wine is as luscious as any vintage we have produced.  This cabernet comes from our most prized vineyards and is the owner's namesake. Out of the 12 acres planted, winemaker Dean Sylvester hand selected the fruit from seven vineyard rows. Loaded with bright, ripe fruit and intensity in depth, enjoy now or allow to cellar till 2030.

BLEND: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec

The 2012 growing season was quintessential Napa Valley. The fruit was hand sorted and fermented in small lots at an average of 85°F with gentle pump-overs for excellent flavor and color extraction. The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 18 months and blended to attain balance. Merlot increased softness on the mid-palate while Malbec added texture and additional layers of ripe flavors to the wine.

BLEND: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Petit Verdot

The Leonardini Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from handpicked blocks in Whitehall Lane’s Estate Vineyards. This 2013 wine was made from grapes grown in three of the Leonardini Family’s seven Estate Vineyard properties. It included select vineyard rows of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Oak Glen and Millennium MM Vineyards. The Petit Verdot was harvested from our Fawn Park Vineyard in St. Helena. The wine was aged in 80% French and 20% American oak barrels for 22 months. This is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has a deep, intense color and a distinct fruit center that begins with black cherry, violet and currant aromas. It is well balanced, elegant and sleek on the palate, delivering very long berry and cherry flavors through to the finish. The underlying tannin structure, complexity and ample fruit guarantees rewards to the patient collector over the next 12 or so years (about 2028.)

Complex and elegant with aromas of plum and black cherry, it is a true example of the exceptional 2013 growing season. “A Merlot for Cabernet Lovers”, this big, bold wine will catch you by surprise with its structure and smooth nish. With proper cellaring, it will continue to evolve through 2022.

BLEND: 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
 
This wine marks a winemaker and winemaking transition. Now-retired winemaker, Dean Sylvester, harvested the fruit in 2014 and new winemaker, Jason Moulton, put the final blend together and bottled it as unfined and unfiltered. The Merlot grapes were grown in the winery’s Estate Vineyard in Rutherford and select vineyards throughout Napa Valley.  The plush red raspberry and cherry flavors and aromas leap from the glass. This merlot has an amazing core of ripe, jammy berry and currant fruit that is beautifully framed by toasty oak. It is supple in texture and shows attractive depth on the finish. Enjoy right now and through 2020 with proper cellaring.
