2018 Fisher 'Coach Insignia' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley


Crafted from the most exceptional lots of Bordeaux varietals sourced from our Calistoga Estate, the Coach Insignia Cabernet Sauvignon embodies excellence. Situated at the base of The Palisades mountain range, our vineyards flourish on an alluvial fan with a gentle westward slope, tracing Simmons Creek to the Napa River. Characterized by well-drained soils predominantly composed of cobblestones and loam, our Estate consistently yields grapes of unparalleled quality. The 2018 vintage showcases a symphony of flavors, with inky dark red and purplish fruit, hints of licorice, spice, and lavender, as well as delicate notes reminiscent of pencil shavings, weaving seamlessly through the 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.
