Wine of the Week: 2009 Leese-Fitch Cabernet Sauvignon

This blended California wine is a steal at $10. Pair it with anything from the barbecue.March 10, 2011, Los Angeles Times

"Remove the price tag before you pour this wine: Nobody is going to believe this isn't a Cabernet in the high $20s or $30s, instead of one for $10. OK, that's a bit more than Two-Buck Chuck. But taste this one. It has the requisite deep garnet color and a lovely scent of cherries, blackberries and coffee. It's smooth and round in the mouth, tannins tucked in and soft, a lilting acidity."By S. Irene Virbila, Los Angeles Times

Rating
Dark garnet in color, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon blend presents aromas of fresh roasted hazelnuts, espresso, cherry liquor, and black currants. In the mouth, this Cabernet blend exudes deep blackberry notes with toffee, dark cherry, Dutch cocoa, tea leaf, and fig compote. On the finish, there are rich tannins, caramel oak notes, toasted coconut, and black raspberry with mouthwatering acidity. This wine would go great with an open-faced steak sandwich with caramelized onions and shaved asiago cheese alongside an arugula salad studded with dried cherries and candied pecans. Lamb meatballs over soft polenta with an oven roasted tomato sauce and dried black olives or Korean BBQ ribs with all the fixings would be a great option.

Wine maker notes
The 2009 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.
