NAPA VALLEY

Coach Insignia, Cabernet Sauvignon

The Coach Insignia honors our family's tradition of craftsmanship, first represented in fine automobiles of the 20th century with Body by Fisher and now in Fisher Vineyards' wines of the 21st century. The Coach Insignia Cabernet represents the pinnacle of our winemaking craft, comprised of the finest selected lots of Bordeaux varietals from our Napa Valley Estate.

Tasting Notes

Dark garnet in color, the 2003 Coach Insignia Cabernet touts layered aromas of dark cherry, violet, rosemary and clove. The palate expands to show off chewy tannins and an integrated core of black cherry, strawberry, and anise along with nuances of chocolate. This wine has it all with mid-palate acidity for long term ageability, as well as ripe chewy Cabernet fruit and tremendous length that begs for immediate consumption.

- Whitney Fisher, Winemaker
