Winemaker Notes

The aromas of the 2016 Leese-Fitch Cabernet Sauvignon start with a sweet raspberry and licorice notes and finish with hints of root beer and cherry cola. The flavor palate includes touches of tart cherry and dark blackberry that are balanced with nuances of vanilla and sandlewood. The midpalate is medium-bodied with structured tannins as to be expected with Cabernet Sauvignon. The unique finish harmonizes flavors of dark fruit, rich American and French oak notes and candied orange peel.

Another crowd-pleasing Cabernet Sauvignon vintage from Leese-Fitch. This 2016 California Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with steak fajitas and smoky pinto beans, a roast beef French Dip sandwich with a side of pesto pasta salad, or a classic Margherita pizza.

Blend: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon , 10% Merlot, 3% Petite Sirah, 3% Rubired, 2% Barbera, 2% Alicante Bouchet, 2% Ruby Cabernet

COMMENTARY: Cabernet Sauvignon can be perfect choices for upscale sports bars. Their richness combined with easiness on the palate provided and excellent pairings in these casual occasions. The 2016 Leese-Fitch Cabernet Sauvignon works well in this scenario. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with bold, ripe fruit and attractive oak aromas and flavors. Its rich and full textures pair it nicely with piquant chicken wings and pepperoni pizza slices. (Tasted: June 26, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Leese-Fitch, California

The wines of Leese-Fitch are wines that celebrate the deep heritage of California embodied in the iconic Leese-Fitch Adobe built in the 1830s and still at home in the historic town of Sonoma, California today. More than simple wines from California, these wines classically represent each varietal from which they are made.

Truly a representation of everything California, Leese-Fitch was born in the town of Sonoma. The state of California was also born in this now quiet, rural town. Before the glitz of Hollywood, prior to the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge and the innovation of Silicon Valley – in California there was the town of Sonoma. Early one Sunday morning, General Vallejo, who possessed the land grant that included the town, heard a knock at his door. A small, yet heavily-armed group of Americans requested that he surrender Sonoma. The General, who later went on to serve in the California State Senate, peacefully acquiesced. To legitimize their conquest, the Americans drew a crude rendition of a grizzly bear on canvas along with the words “California Republic.” In the center of the Sonoma Plaza a new flag was raised. The Republic of California was born.

Covering the most vine acreage in the state compared to any other red wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon produces as much wine in California as Merlot and Pinot noir combined. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates, as well as the freedom of its winemakers, allow for an incredible range of wine styles from this single grape.

California’s most famous region—and especially for Cabernet Sauvignon—is the acclaimed Napa Valley. While Cabernet is successful throughout the world, rarely has it achieved such merit as it does from the Napa Valley. At this point the two are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other.

Napa’s closest neighbor, Sonoma County, does an impressive job keeping up with Napa’s fame and glory. Alexander Valley, Sonoma Mountain, Moon Mountain and Knights Valley contribute to the lot of some of California’s top-rated Cabernet Sauvignon.

Lake County in California’s North Coast has become a focus for some of Napa’s more respected growers. From the Central Coast come iconic examples of classic California Cabernet; Lodi and the Sierra Foothills are great budget-friendly sources of amicable Cabernets.
