A dark ruby color, raspberry and sassafras aromas are complemented by sweet cherry, cinnamon, vanilla and subtle oak notes. The first sip showcases plum, pomegranate, blackberry, and delicate rosemary. The finish is reminiscent of dried cranberry, sweet leather, and cherry cola with a hint of cedar and minerals.
Our 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced within the Lodi appellation, predominantly the Borden Ranch and Mokelumne River sub-appellations. Both sub-appellations have beautiful maroon topsoil which is well-known to grown excellent red wine grapes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petite Sirah from Clarksburg add cool climate structure to this blend with earthy notes and chewy tannins. Last but not least, a pinch of Paso Robles Zinfandel adds spice and jammy fruit to soften the blend.
Leese Fitch WinesView all from Leese Fitch Wines
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.
