Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of dark chocolate, currant and black tea are followed by expressions of black cherry and ripe blackberry. On the palate, the ultra dark fruit notes are met with flavors expressive of the hillsides where it grows - lavendar, sage, forrest floor and crushed rock minerality. The textire also speaks of mountain fruit boasting dense structure and rich tannins.

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.
