Leese-Fitch Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Region: California

Rating: The Tasting Panel 90 points

Winemaker's Description:  Showcasing a dark garnet hue with purple edges, this Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits enticing aromas of blackberry cobbler, dark cherry, toasted coconut, nutmeg, and violets with hints of clove and muddled raspberries on the nose. Layered flavors of black currants, pomegranate reduction, tart cherry, mocha chocolate notes and dark caramel fill the palate. The finish shows hints of toasted coconut and rich vanilla nuances which balance out the dark fruit nicely.

This wine would pair exceptionally well with a meat lovers Lasagna and garlic bread, lamb sliders topped with arugula and a raspberry BBQ sauce, or stir fried wild mushrooms with veggies in an oyster sauce over jasmine rice.
