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. Located in the heart of Calistoga, these Estate vineyards are planted in well-drained alluvial, sedimentary soils alongside Simmons Canyon Creek, which flows west from the Calistoga Palisades to the Napa River.

Tasting Notes

Opulent aromas of high toned fresh raspberry and ripe plum mingle with rose petal and a hint of forest floor. The palate is juicy on entry yielding a very polished mid palate with fine grain well layered tannins. Flavors of blackberry and dark cherry, along with tobacco leaf, anise and toasty caramel, espresso bean oak elements unite, culminating with a supple finish and striking minerality.
