Winemaker Notes

Fischer’s wines focus on high acidity, lower alcohol, and strive to showcase

varietal. All of the vineyards are sustainably or organically farmed and managed

by the same Vineyard management team that he closely works with. The fruit is

hand picked and hand sorted, and fermentations take place with both native

and indigenous yeasts. Reductive winemaking techniques, punchdowns only

by hand, and extended lees contact up until bottling keep the wines bright,

fresh, and clean. 

Critical Acclaim

V 91
Vinous
The 2019 Cabernet Franc Coquelicot is bright, punchy and effusive. Readers will find an aromatic, light to medium-bodied Cabernet Franc. Rose petal, mint, sage, mocha and a burst of red berry fruit punctuate this vibrant, refreshing Franc from Jeff Fisher and Habit. A backbone of tannin makes the Franc a fabulous wine for the dinner table.

For winemaker Jeff Fischer, the quest to find what made a good wine great led to a decade of experimentation, trial and error. His first label, Casa Pescador, was a crowning achievement for an amateur winemaker. But it was mostly a friends-and-family affair. The chosen grapes and methodologies worked well, yet the results were inconsistent. Having had a taste of the magic that was possible, it was time for Jeff to take things to another level. His home operation had outgrown itself. It was time to move up to 'boutique'. And it was time to make a truly great wine, and all great wines start with the right grape...

Jeff has been to just about every corner of California and beyond in his search for the right grape to make the wine on his mind. To cut a years-long story short, he finally found what he was looking for in 2007, standing in a field in Happy Canyon, Santa Barbara County.

The map that led Jeff to Happy Canyon was drawn from countless conversations with wine lovers and vintners; both novices and experts whom he hoped could help him find what he was looking for. In Happy Canyon, the microclimate, the soil, the soft pacific breeze all combine to give birth to some of the finest Bordeaux grape varietals to come out of California. Jeff knew he had found his grape.

With so many years of frustrated experience under his belt, Jeff soon also found friends and accomplices in the region, each of them drawn to this point of convergence, each of them with a different wine on their mind. Their friendship, generosity of expertise and passion for the process has helped Jeff bring my own Habit into the public domain. Handcrafted, using artisanal methods in a state of the art facility, Habit is everything he hoped it would be.

Ranging from cool and foggy in the west to warm and dry in the east, the Santa Ynez Valley is a climatically diverse growing area. The most expansive AVA within the larger Santa Barbara County region, Santa Ynez is also home to a wide variety of soil types and geographical features. The appellation is further divided into four distinct sub-AVAs—Sta. Rita Hills, Ballard Canyon, Los Olivos District and Happy Canyon—each with its own defining characteristics.

A wide selection of grapes is planted here—more than sixty different varieties, and counting. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir dominate in the chilly west, while Zinfandel, Rhône blends, and Bordeaux blends rule the arid east. Syrah is successful at both ends of the valley, with a lean and peppery, Old-World sensibility closer to the coast and lush berry fruit further inland.

Cabernet Franc, a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon, is the subtler and more delicate of the Cabernets. Today Cabernet Franc produces outstanding single varietal wines across the wine-producing world. Somm Secret—One of California's best-kept secrets is the Happy Canyon appellation of Santa Barbara. Here Cabernet Franc shines as a single varietal wine or in blends, expressing sumptuous fruit, savory aromas and polished tannins.
