    Winemaker Notes

    Oak is kept to lower levels than is the case with our Cabernets. At 33% new French oak, we find the hazelnut and chocolate character of the wine lifted without any of the overpowering astringent qualities that too much wood can impart. The 1997 RCF is a wonderfully plush, juicy Merlot with some real stuffing to age. Enjoy this wine presently for its fruit and impeccable balance or cellar for three to five years to bring forth its intense aromatics and aristocratic structure.

    Fisher Vineyards, Sonoma County, California
    Image of winery
    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.
