Deep ruby in color, the nose has notes of black cherry, root beer syrup, and cedar. The 2007 vintage of Leese-Fitch Cabernet has flavors of rich berry cobbler, cappuccino, chocolate covered mints, currants & fig cake. It finishes with toasted marshmallows and dried blueberries.
This Cabernet is very complex, with integrated French oak and layered sweet fruit and savory nuances. Pair this wine with hearty fare such as seared flank steak with a port reduction sauce and rosemary fingerling potatoes, roasted venison loin stuffed with wild mushrooms alongside Asiago polenta, or a good beef burger topped with white cheddar cheese and caramelized onions served with sweet potato fries.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
California produces the majority of wine made in the United States.

Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
