Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Leoville Barton delivers a superstar nose of cr?me de cassis, plum preserves and blueberry compote with suggestions of fragrant earth, unsmoked cigars, licorice and cedar chest. Medium to full-bodied, rich and seductive with firm yet velvety tannins, it has a decadently rich finish.
