2016 LETO CELLARS MT VEEDER CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$85.00

I had to share this — because I just enjoyed a bottle of this Mt. Veeder Wine last night with a Grilled Ribeye, Baked Potatoe, and Creamed Spinach… it was a perfect pairing, and this is definitely the best wine with steak.

Medium to Full-Bodied Napa Cab cut through the steak, and the mouth-watering acidity made each side dish bite exquisite… and this wine is actually so very well balanced, that it even paired wonderfully with a slice of chocolate cake.

Description

When we discover a brilliant example with top-level winemaking and exceptional fruit sources, we work on building relationships to gain access to those leftover cases.  Leto Cellars is a grand example, and the wines are made by Brad Warner who spent nearly 30 years at Mondavi, where he worked his way up to Vice President of production. Brad took everything he’s learned in winemaking, and multiplied it by the passion he has for his own brand.

2016 Leto Cellars Napa Cab checks in at 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from a single vineyard perched at 1,100 feet elevation on Mount Veeder.  Brad choose this site for the incredible volcanic soils, and vines that yield small, powerful berries with intense flavor.  Mt Veeder is also the coolest Mountain in Napa which allows the grapes to have a longer hang-time so they can develop into something majestic. With a production of only 344 cases, you might want to keep this one secret, at least until you get your case.

2016 LETO CELLARS MT VEEDER CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Master Sommelier Tasting Notes, “The 2016 Leto showcases firm yet lush mountain Cabernet, starting with aromas of crushed blackberries, tobacco, white flowers and vanilla spice.  These aromatics meld beautifully into a wonderfully complex palate of black currants, ripe black cherries, wild blueberries, liquid minerals, unsweetened chocolate and kirsch. The tannins are fine, dusty, and well integrated with the wonderfully concentrated flavors. The finish is appropriately beautiful, with just enough balanced acidity to keep the palate lively, fresh, deep, and long.” Kevin M. Vogt, 95 POINTS
