Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This full-bodied Californian Red is lovely and complex with earthy beet aromas, as well as blueberry, mint, violet, pot-pourri, cedar, autumn leaves, bell pepper and hints of vanilla.

The earthy quality follows through on the palate. Additionally, there are tart yet ripe blackberry flavours and cocoa at the finish. The tannins are medium and well integrated with the fresh acidity levels. A great product that won’t break the bank. A must try!

Leese-Fitch 2015 is a well-priced mostly Cabernet Sauvignon from California. The balance of this full-bodied red blend is 10% Merlot, 4% Ruby Cabernet (a cross of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan), 4% Zinfandel, 2% Rubired (a Californian hybrid based on Tinto Cão) and 2% Petite Sirah, sourced from prime sites in Lodi (62%), Clarksburg (28%) and Mendocino (10%). Pair with grilled meats. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
