The nose evokes black cherry cordial, fresh blackberries, strawberry rhubarb pie, mocha, cedar, dark chocolate, and a hint of graphite.
On the palate, it bursts with mixed berry compote, blackberry jam, cacao bean, and toasted walnuts on the finish. This wine has great texture that ultimately finishes with round, silky smooth tannins.
The 2017 growing year was picture perfect with warm spring and summer days making optimum conditions for flavor development in every grape cluster. The Merlot and Zinfandel grapes were the first to ripen in mid-September followed by the Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah in late September and mid-October.
Enjoy Tre Leoni with your next barbeque and when gathering with family or friends.
