Coach Insignia 2001

External Review:

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.

The winery was founded in 1973, when Fred and Juelle purchased 100 acres in the Mayacamas Mountains on the western slope of Spring Mountain.

The winery was founded in 1973, when Fred and Juelle purchased 100 acres in the Mayacamas Mountains on the western slope of Spring Mountain. There, they built a winery tucked in among the vines and Douglas Firs. The winery itself is a product of the estate, having been built from the timber that was cut and milled on-site and crafted into an award-winning facility by their good friend and architect, William Turnbull. In 1976, the family found another 57 acres on the Silverado Trail in the Napa Valley. The property runs from the Napa River to the Eastern Vaca Range, adjacent to the famed Eisele Vineyard, and is the source of our Lamb Vineyard Cabernet, Coach Insignia Cabernet and Cameron, Bordeaux Blend.

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.

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.

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.

(Barrel tasting) Very impressive youngster. Pure, rich and focused Cabernet, with a complex array of currant, black cherry, plum, coffee, leather and spice.

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.

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.
