VARIETAL. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

VINEYARD. Leslie’s Estate, Montebello.

WINEMAKING. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, organically farmed, from our Estate vineyards located high above the clouds atop Montebello Ridge, this opulent wine exemplifies the Picchetti style of Cabernet. Meticulous use of French oak (45% new barrels) beautifully transforms the intense mountain fruit into a wine with uncommon richness, luxurious texture and a velvety smooth finish.. This extraordinary wine is a joy to taste now, but the savory leathery tannins will further reward those patient enough to cellar it through 2038 or longer. A wine of immense pedigree, this vintage is further proof of why Montebello is considered one of the world's premier Cabernet Sauvignon growing sites. À votre santé!

Aroma: Fruit-focused aromas of black cherry, vanilla-oak, wild coastal sage, espresso dipped biscotti, dark chocolate and cured leather notes.
Palate: The palate is explosively bright with flourishes of ripe brambly fruit, and umami that provide nuance and continually shifting points of interest, and that quintessential minerality synonymous with the Montebello terroir linger in the background.

FOOD PAIRING. Pair with Kobe-style beef with a peppercorn demi-glace, wild mushroom ragoût, truffled french fries, roasted bone marrow, or a grilled portobello mushroom sandwich on brioche with aged cheddar, mixed greens & truffle aioli.
