The 2015 Fisher 'Mountain Estate' Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County is a master example of how to tame to the tough terrain and mountain climate within which this vineyard sits. Planted on extremely steep terrain, the grapes produced from these stressed vines produce fruit that is loaded with tension and vigor. Bright cherry and plum awake the senses, with dark fruit flavors, richness and tobacco on the palate. Bold and powerful, the wine glides to an easy finish.

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.

Vinous

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mountain Estate Vineyard is a bold wine with all of the rugged character and savoriness of hillside Sonoma Cabernets. Smoke, black pepper, herb, graphite, licorice and gravel, along with firm tannins, give the Mountain Estate its unique personality.
