2014 LETO “EXCEPTIONAL SELECTION” CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Have you ever tasted a “reserve level” wine from a given winery and thought that it was very similar to the winery’s standard offering? Me too, but this wine is the polar opposite of that scenario… Leto only produces their Exceptional Selection when the wine is “unusually excellent” and dramatically differs from their other bottling of Cabernet. This wine is deeper, richer and more powerful and fulfills every desire that one would have in an upper echelon Cabernet Sauvignon. The Exceptional Selection comes from a micro-block of 1/2 century old vines in the heart of St Helena. The vineyard has been farmed by the same family for over 100 years…
Brad Warner, owner and winemaker has been making wine for over a 1/2 century, and it shows in this classically styled, deep and hauntingly penetrating wine. A mere 3 barrels of Exceptional Selection were produced and after developing for 24 months in oak, the wine is marked by hauntingly intense aromas, intertwined with pressed blackberries, black expresso beans, vivid floral and Baker’s chocolate. With 70 cases produced in total, I wouldn’t hesitate to secure a case.
