Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec and 2% Merlot.

The 2005 Coach Insignia boasts deep garnet color with opulent aromas of black cherry, blackberries and candied violet. The palate is full, showing plum and cassis, accented by a layer of espresso-like fine grain tannin. with tiem in the glass the wine continues to open, evolving to express further nuanced aromas of tobacco leaf and dark cocoa powder.

About Fisher Vineyards:

Founded in 1973 by Fred and Juelle Fisher, the winery is nestled at the 1500-foot elevation on the western face of the Mayacamas Mountains between the Napa and Sonoma Valleys and home to their Wedding Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Whitney's Vineyard Chardonnay. Their Coach Insignia Cabernet, Lamb Vineyard Cabernet and RCF Vineyard Merlot come from their estate on the Silverado Trail in the Napa Valley. It is from these two sites that the winery strives to fulfill their mission of producing world class Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
