Tasting Notes

Blackberry, black cherry and vanilla notes on the nose. This medium bodied wine is well integrated and true to the grape: blackberry notes, black cherry, and a hint of oak spice. It is ripe and refreshing without being jammy.

WINE INFORMATION

The wines of Leese-Fitch celebrate the restoration of the Leese-Fitch building located in the Sonoma Square. Built in 1836, this historical landmark in Sonoma Plaza was named after Jacob Leese and Henry Fitch, brothers-in-law to General Mariano Vallejo, the founder of the town of Sonoma.  The wine is one of the projects of The Other Guys, a company run by August Sebastiani, fourth-generation member of one of California's oldest wine families, Sonoma's Don Sebastiani & Sons.

The majority of the Merlot grapes for this wine come from the California regions of Lodi and Clarksburg. Merlot from Wilson Vineyard in Clarksburg and the Schatz Family Vineyard in Lodi comprise the majority of the fruit. The long-term growing partnerships with these growers allow the winery to have intimate knowledge of the vineyards to pick the fruit at ultimate ripeness.
