1996 Leonetti Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla

Last glass of this wine that a table brought in a few nights back. Murky garnet color. On the nose, developed, medium intensity, layered, some cherry, plum, and currant, but taken over by leather, tobacco, bell pepper, dusty earth, loaded with spices, with some earth, and some oak. On the palate, dry, medium intensity, medium body, medium tannins, good balance, with a good silky finish dominated by stemmy and peppery component.
