Reviews and Ratings

Leese-Fitch Zinfandel 2016 is a medium-plus-bodied, juicy blend of grapes from Lodi, Paso Robles, Mendocino and Clarksburg. Luxurious with ripe strawberry, raspberry and ripe cherry, mocha and smoky vanilla flavours on the palate. Delicious with vibrant acidity for food. Pair gourmet burgers. - 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.
