Sep. 13, 2001: LEONETTI Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 1998 (93 points, $60)

From one of the region's top producers comes another outstanding Cabernet. The '98 Leonetti is ripe, round and graceful, a pretty wine that's generous with its plum and black currant flavors, swirling with jasmine, rose petal and vanilla flavors, and ech —Harvey Steiman
