  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($75) Medium ruby. Aromas of cassis, bitter chocolate, chicory and fresh herbs. Rich, dense, concentrated flavors of black raspberry, cassis, chocolate and licorice; sappy but tightly wound today, thanks to firm acids. Quite tactile, even powerful, on the sweetly oaky, long aftertaste. Built to age.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    Serves up a pure, rich, delicious core of blackberry extract, with touches of currant,black cherry, plum and anise, finishing with a long, rich, detailed aftertaste. Sufficient tannins to merit cellaring. An extraordinary effort that ranks as Fisher's finest. 2,000 cases made.

    The deep ruby/purple-colored 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Coach Insignia (a 2,370-case blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Franc) exhibits a creamy nose of chocolate, smoke, cassis, and licorice, an up-front, rich, fleshy, elegant style, medium body, and a sweet finish. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.

  • 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.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
