First off, this guy is a 2009. ’09 was a great year in Bordeaux. Nature gave winemakers everything they could have wanted – a clear and bright bud break, a hot, but not too hot, summer ripening, and a long lasting summer that was persistently warm. The results were excellent fruit material. Coupled with extraordinary winemaking, the results are stunningly delicious to taste in the glass:
This benchmark-setting Cabernet blend raises the bar: It’s full-bodied, complex and utterly complete. The palate is stacked and packed in that most elegant of French ways – it has the triumvirate of mouth-coating fruit, muscular tannins and delineating persistence. A knockout perfume of violets, ripe black cherries macerated with a hint of cracked pepper, mint and clove; Pauillac’s famous “lead pencil” aroma intermingles with creme de cassis, overripe blueberries, plums and vanilla wood. The palate is loaded with blackberry, fig, graham cracker and blackcurrant flavors that are expansive in their richness. The finish is perfectly infused with vanilla and nutty spices, lingering for minutes. It’s fully ready to go now, but will also live on for at least another 10 years in your cellar.

Tre Leoni opens with wonderful Rutherford Bench aromas: melted chocolate, blackberries, cassis, red wine-macerated cherries, roasted coffee beans and a wonderfully exotic mixture of sweet spices that just keeps giving and giving. And the palate almost does the aromas one better: a velvety smooth density of totally refined and integrated tannins cushions the tongue into relaxation, with a mouthfeel so luxurious you’ll start to wonder how you’ve managed this long without it. The finish is, of course, harmoniously rich and powerful, a grand gesture of Napa Cabernet.
It’s the 2012 vintage, and I like my Napa Cabernets like I like my Arnold Schwarzenegger movies – when they’re young and super pumped, prancing around fresh from a victory at the Mr. Universe competition. So go ahead and drink straightaway, I’d say. But some of you may want a more elegant and refined Tuesday evening – in that case, fear not in holding this bottle for a decade in your cellar.
