Wedding Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon

First planted to Martha's Vineyard clone Cabernet in 1973, the Wedding Vineyard covers eleven gently sloping acres (up to 15 degrees, oriented south-west) on our Mountain Estate at an elevation of 1,200 feet. Approximately nine acres were replanted in 2002 under the careful guidance of David Abreu: seven blocks of Cabernet (clone 337 and Martha's Vineyard clone), one block of Petit Verdot (clone 400) and one block of Cabernet Franc (clone 327).

Tasting Notes

Aromas of fresh, juicy blackberries, violet and iris, as well as rich ground cardamom with a hint of rosemary. Smooth on entry, the palate is concentrated with dense, fine-grained tannin and a persistent finish. With every taste, this Cabernet demonstrates that it is truly a product of the site. A sensorial promenade of harvest at Fisher Vineyards: from the uber-ripe blackberries along our childhood home in the mountains, to aromas of freshly fallen plums and fresh-cut avenues of dried cover crops. Ever present at the winery is the waft of rosemary from giant, woody hedges that line our drive and pathways. Alluring and elegant floral overtones of violet and iris mark this site and this wine as one of a kind.
