Tre Leoni, 2015, Whitehall Lane, Napa Valley
Our Tre Leoni embodies all the power and grace of the majestic lion. Bold and hearty, purrrrrrfectly balanced and BIG. This wine would have been the best gift for the Wizard of Oz to give to the cowardly lion who was hoping for a bit of (Dutch) courage.
The Four Point Lowdown
- Packed with black fruits and dark chocolate
- Deep and rich - a belter of a wine
- Pairs with anything suited to the BBQ
- Perfect for cool, wet nights that need a bit of warmth
About this wine
This audacious wine from sunny California is expertly blended to produce the silkiest, smoothest tipple. It's bursting with flavour and is unapologetic in its boldness. We love the art work on the label; the lion won't stop stalking you until you pop the cork!
A powerful wine with bags of dark fruit, sweet baked plums, liquorice and blackcurrant. This is a seriously smooth operator and has a moreish viscous texture. 2015 was a picture perfect growing year in Napa Valley and the end result is a stunning wine for adventurous sippers.
What Makes It So Grape?
Produced in California
Three generations of the Leonardini Family (Tre Leoni) are responsible for this expertly made proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Zinfandel. Each grape varietal was fermented and aged as separate lots in French and American oak barrels.
Winemaker Jason Moulton tasted through each lot and put the final blend together in early 2017 after ageing for 18 months. This wine was bottled unfiltered, and the beautiful art work on the label is by artist Jacqui Oakley.
