A well-rounded effort that is sure to please folks looking for a good-drinking wine, the 2015 Leese-Fitch Cabernet Sauvignon shows up with open-knit flavors of ripe berries and sweet wood. The wine's well-balanced structure, without any tannic edge, makes it a perfect choice with mixed grilled meats. (Tasted: August 3, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
Deep garnet in color, this wine bursts with aromas of sweetened cranberry, cassis, toasted marshmallow, charred dill and roasted red pepper. The aroma is smoky, complex and inviting. On the palate are notes of tart raspberry, spring cherry, and crunchy plum, leading to toffee and fresh roasted Arabica coffee beans, followed by dill, sage and lime zest. The finish is smooth with hints of smoke, cocoa, and unsweetened dried coconut.
