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.
