External Reviews for Coach Insignia
Bright blackberry fruit mingled with aromas of cedar and dark cherry. Smooth entry on the palate, flavors of ripe red fruits mingle with the earthy tones of tobacco and cedar as they combine with sweet tannins for a lengthy finish.
2003 appears to be a strong vintage for Fisher, with the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Coach Insignia revealing a sexy, upfront style with projected aromatics, beautiful balance, plenty of licorice-infused black currant fruit, and a personality not unlike a top Pomerol, even though this is virtually all Cabernet Sauvignon, not Merlot. Drink it over the next decade.
Ripe and fleshy, with appealing spicy, floral currant and plum flavors that are long and persistent in the finish, though a bit transparent midpalate. Drink now through 2008.
Bright ruby-red. Currant, black cherry, graphite, licorice and fresh herbs on the nose. Then sweet, rich and suave in the mouth, with creamy flavors of red fruits, tobacco and herbs nicely shaped by harmonious acidity. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good but not outstanding length.
Intense and concentrated, with a rich core of earthy currant, leather, anise, mineral and sage. Takes time to open, but offers a lot of complex, concentrated fruit flavors. Best from 2001 through 2009.
Wonderful balance and sense of harmony here, with rich earthy currant, black cherry, anise, sage, cedar and tarry notes, finishing with ripe tannins and excellent length. Drink now through 2010.
(Barrel tasting) Very impressive youngster. Pure, rich and focused Cabernet, with a complex array of currant, black cherry, plum, coffee, leather and spice.
