WA94

First planted to Martha's Vineyard clone Cabernet in 1973, and subsequently replanted in 2002, the Wedding Vineyard covers eleven gently sloping acres at an elevation of 1,200 feet. Parker called this “Opaque purple, with blackberry liqueur, licorice, truffle and a touch of charcoal and camphor... impressively concentrated, multilayered and full-bodied, with sweet tannin and a long, long finish. It's the richest and most complete of what is an impressive group of Cabernet Sauvignon wines.” Vinous said “The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Wedding Vineyard brings together the best qualities of the year. Dark, seamless and voluptuous, the 2012 stands out for its total sense of balance and class. All the elements fall into place in this gracious, super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon.” Incredible BREED! 216 cases produced.

The Fisher family has the sort of vineyards that will cause a winemaker’s pulse to quicken – a vitally important advantage in a game where the conversation starts (and ends) with raw materials. From their gorgeous estate property on the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas range, to their Lamb vineyard in Calistoga, they have some magical land at their disposal. Winemaker Whitney Fisher and her team are farming these plots to exacting standards, and the results are some of the best wines in the Valley! You owe it to yourself to mix up a case of these fabulous wines.

Wine Advocate

Opaque purple, with blackberry liqueur, licorice, truffle and a touch of charcoal and camphor is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Wedding Vineyard. I believe this comes from a vineyard right in front of the winery, and is impressively concentrated, multilayered and full-bodied, with sweet tannin and a long, long finish. It’s the richest and most complete of what is an impressive group of Cabernet Sauvignon wines. Drink this one over the next 12-15 years.
