SONOMA COUNTY

Wedding Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon

Originally planted in 1973, the Wedding Vineyard graces the south facing slope of the mountain in front of the winery and runs the entire length of our secluded Spring Mountain Estate. Commemorating the site of Fred and Juelle Fisher's wedding in 1975, the Wedding Vineyard is not only an integral part of the winery, but also of our family's life here on the mountain (read more about the vineyard).

Tasting Notes

Dark ruby in color, liqueur aromas of black cherry, bittersweet chocolate and flowers. It has earthy mineral tones with a dense broad middle and mouth-coating flavors. Opens nicely on the back end with broad 'sweet' tannins and a long, lingering finish.
