Leese Fitch Merlot 2016
Our 2016 vintage developed fruit with big ripe character and more depth than average. Upon harvesting the grapes, we were very pleased with the character that developed. The 2016 Leese-Fitch Merlot blend showcases aromas of dark cherry and raspberry fruit with hints of toasted coconut, oregano, and crushed cardamom. The palate starts with dried blueberry and then erupts into cherry and raspberry preserves fruit flavors. The mid palate has good depth and structure with mouth-filling soft tannins. Finally, brambly fruit, fig newton, and toasty French oak notes show on a lingering finish. This Merlot pairs well with a portobello mushroom burger topped with smoked provolone cheese and fig jam, ham and pineapple pizza from your favorite Hawaiian pizza spot, or spaghetti with sweet sausage and sautéed peppers.
A charred wood aroma and toasted bread flavors stand out in this medium-bodied oaky-flavored wine, masking much of the fruit flavor that might lie beneath.
