Leese-Fitch Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Showcasing a dark garnet hue with purple edges, this Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits enticing aromas of blackberry cobbler, dark cherry, toasted coconut, nutmeg, and violets with hints of clove and muddled raspberries on the nose. Layered flavors of black currants, pomegranate reduction, tart cherry, mocha chocolate notes and dark caramel fill the palate. The finish shows hints of toasted coconut and rich vanilla nuances which balance out the dark fruit nicely.
The wines of Leese-Fitch celebrate the restoration of the Leese-Fitch building located in the Sonoma Square. Built in 1836, this historical landmark in Sonoma Plaza was named after Jacob Leese and Henry Fitch, brothers-in-law to General Mariano Vallejo, the founder of the town of Sonoma. This wine would go great with an open-faced steak sandwich with caramelized onions and shaved asiago cheese alongside an arugula salad studded with dried cherries and candied pecans.
