Wedding Vineyard

First planted to Martha's Vineyard clone in 1973, Wedding Vineyard graces a south facing slope in front of our original mountain winery, running the length of our secluded estate. Nine acres were replanted in 2002 under the careful guidance of David Abreu: seven blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon (clone 337 and Martha's Vineyard clone), one block of Petit Verdot (clone 400) and one block of Cabernet Franc (clone 327). The final remaining block was replanted in 2010 (Wiemer clone).

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Wedding Vineyard is dark, dense and enveloping, with real sense of richness and gravitas. Inky dark fruit, scorched earth, cedar, tobacco, licorice, menthol and incense all build in a potent, sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon that balances fruit intensity with structure. A dollop of co-fermented Petit Verdot adds character. Unctuous, dense and bursting with explosive energy, the 2017 is another brilliant wine in this range from the Fisher family.
