Generous, with ripe plum, black cherry and fleshy Cabernet fruit thatrsquo;s smooth-textured and unfolds in layers, gaining depth and complexity. Ends with a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2014.
The question about this wine is, will it age? Itrsquo;s a tough little puppy now, firm and hard with tannins and acids, and not too pleasant. But yoursquo;ll find rich, sweet blackberry and cherry fruit on the finish. Then therersquo;s the fine balance of tannins, acids and oak. My hunch is, itrsquo;s a keeper.
The 1997 Coach Insignia (77% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc) is also powerful, with a more seamless personality that the 1996. The wine is moderately tannic and full-bodied, with loads of chocolate;y, black cherry, and cassis fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2000ndash;2014.
Serves up a pure, rich, delicious core of blackberry extract, with touches of currant, black cherry, plum and anise, finishing with a long, rich, detailed aftertaste. Sufficient tannins to merit cellaring. An extraordinary effort that ranks as Fisherrsquo;s finest. Best from 2003 through 2012.
Solid, with a good core of earthy currant, cedar and tar, and itrsquo;s nicely balanced, if a bit on the tannic side at this stage. Approachable now through 2002.
Smooth and polished mdash; especially compared with Fisherrsquo;s Wedding vineyard bottling mdash; this is a generous wine with pretty black cherry, plum and wild berry flavors, well-integrated tannins. Best from 2000 through 2006.
Opens with complex aromas of cassis and new smoky oak, and turns lush and smooth when it hits the palate, yet at times seems almost too ripe. Gorgeous now, and should improve through 2015.
