Winemaker's Notes:

If the 2005 vintage was the delicate and ever so elegant Audrey Hepburn, this 2006 is Marilyn Monroe. Gorgeous black cherry opaque color in the glass; one truly is struck by the dark depths of this wine even before the first sip. Flavors of cassis, blackberry and dark cacao mingle with aromas of black fruit, cedar and black olive. The 2006 is an astonishing vintage that continues to reveal its flavors with increasing intensity culminating in a layered crescendo of fine grain tannins, blackberry and dark chocolate espresso. This is a powerful, seductive wine that benefits from decanting up to thee hours ahead of serving.

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.
