open to leather notes (touches)


Explanation:
on parle bien des "blue notes"
pourquoi pas "leather notes"
cela a qqchose à voir avec le tannin qu'on utilise aussi pour la preparation du cuir
mais vous devez traduire "tannins" plus loin!
bonne chance

leathery overtones


Explanation:
"Ouvert aux..." I read as a hint of, a suggestion etc. As you can suggest a "note" or tone, then how about overtones? Undertones if you want to underplay it?!

leather tones


Explanation:
in thi link below there ares some more details
a sample from wine spectator's view: "
Dense aromatics with black plum, game, leather, menthol, oak and anise notes open this full-throttle red. The palate shows impressive depth of flavor with tart plum and bitter chocolate notes, as well as fine fruit to acid balance. The long, dry, even finish wraps it up beautifully "
