Tasting Notes:
rated: September 15, 2008 , Robert Parker
92 points "The estate’s flagship San Leonardo is outstanding in 2001, in fact it may be the finest wine to come from the estate. Made from low yields of 50 quintals per hectare, it spent a few months in cask prior to being racked into French oak barrels where it aged for 24 months. This blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Merlot is superbly elegant and poised in its layered dark fruit, herbs, tobacco, new leather, spices and licorice. It offers outstanding length and harmony. Whereas in the past I have found San Leonardo to border on being on excessively herbal, the 2001 represents a new level of elegance for the estate. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018." Best 2008-2018
