Winemaker Notes

Juicy and fresh, aromas are layered with a combination of mixed berry pie filling and toasted coconut. On the palate rich flavors of black cherry, blackberry, milk chocolate, coconut cream, and hints of cream-laden coffee are highlighted. The finish is long and sustained with a touch of black pepper, laced with fresh vanilla and smooth coconut.

The ultimate pairing for this Zinfandel would be a Portobello mushroom burger topped with a red pepper relish with a side of sweet potato fries. Or even better, pair with pork tamales or Korean BBQ tacos.

Blend: 82% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah, 4% Barbera, 2% Merlot

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Leese-Fitch Zinfandel is the quintessential "party wine." TASTING NOTES: This wine drinks easily. Its aromas and flavors show ripe berries, some earth, and a dose of wood. Its easy and smooth palate make it an excellent choice with a sausage and mushroom pizza. (Tasted: August 3, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Leese-Fitch, California
Leese-Fitch  Winery Image

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.

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.
