A striking expression of this multifaceted Spring Mountain site, the 2016 shows tremendous power and density. Notes of rose petal and lavender add lift to the deep layers of dark cherry, plum, and spice. Loads of mid-palate depth and richness call for a few years in the cellar to fully evolve.
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.
2016 Wedding Vineyard offers another striking expression of this multi-faceted Spring Mountain site. A wine of density, power and layers of flavor, the 2016 is fabulous. Bright floral notes develop with time in the glass, adding perfume, lift and sensuality to a core of dark cherry, plum, rose petal, lavender and spice. The Wedding Cabernet is often co-fermented with some Petit Verdot, an approach that seems to work especially well here.
