The Cameron Fisher red wine is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, from the more open-for-business blocks in their Calistoga estate, near Eisele. Galloni called this one “one of the more exuberant wines in the range. Juicy red cherry, plum, spice, menthol and cedar are given and extra kick of intensity in this vintage. This is a surprisingly dense, concentrated wine.” We agree 100%—delicious wine!

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.

The 2014 Red Wine Cameron is one of the more exuberant wines in the range. Juicy red cherry, plum, spice, menthol and cedar are given and extra kick of intensity in this vintage. This is a surprisingly dense, concentrated wine for the year. These younger vines yielded an especially ripe, racy wine in 2014.
