Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 89(+?)

Cassis and mint on the nose. Penetrating currant and shoe polish flavors are still quite tightly wrapped; minerally hint of lead pencil. A ripe, dense wine but still a bit hard. Finishes with firm tannins and good but not outstanding length. This is quite densely packed; the Coach Insignia, though lighter, will offer easier early drinkability.

The powerful (14.1% alcohol) 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Lamb Vineyard has been aged in barrel, of which 50% are new. Like all of Fisher's reds, it is bottled without filtration. The color is an opaque purple, and the wine is closed, offering hints of licorice, blueberries, black currants, and spicy oak. In the mouth, it is long, rich, restrained, with the tannin still making a noticeable impression, outstanding purity, a full-bodied mouth-feel, and superb potential. This wine requires another 4-5 years of cellaring.

Firm, focused and concentrated, with rich, chunky, spicy currant, plum, herb, cedar and blackberry, turning complex with earthy, mineral flavors. Strikes a nice balance between its rustic properties and a sense of elegance. 486 cases made.

About This Producer


The winery was founded in 1973, when Fred and Juelle Fisher purchased 100 acres in the Mayacamas Mountains on the western slope of Spring Mountain. There, they built a winery tucked in among the vines and Douglas Firs. The winery itself is a product of the estate, built from the timber that was cut and milled on-site.

In 1976, the family found another 57 acres on the Silverado Trail in the Napa Valley. The property runs from the Napa River to the Eastern Vaca Range, adjacent to the famed Eisele Vineyard, and is the source of thier Lamb Vineyard Cabernet, Coach Insignia Cabernet and Cameron Bordeaux Blend.
