The folks at Barons Winery in Woodinville have produced a remarkable red, their 2012 The Leader Cabernet Sauvignon. It is made using fruit from Hedges, Klipsun, Bel’Villa, Stillwater Creek, and Conner Lee Vineyards and is aged in 40% new French oak. All of which is amazing because it sells for $16. The wine has an aroma of vanilla and mocha, lots of blueberry and black currant. It is supple, having silky tannins and lots of texture. This will age nicely, but at the price, it may not last that long!
