Fetzer Vineyards was founded in 1968 in beautiful Mendocino County by Barney and Kathleen Fetzer. One of the first California wineries to branch out into serious Chardonnay production, Fetzer remains committed to sustainability and environmentally conscious wine production. Dennis Martin oversees all wine-making at Fetzer and is assisted by Charlie Gilmore and Michael Chupp, who are in charge of white wine making and red wine making respectively.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
External Reviews for Fetzer Cabernet Sauvignon Premier
Smooth-textured currant, cranberry, cedar and spice notes are easy-drinking, ending with a tobacco edge. Drink now.
Dark garnet in color, with a rich nose of blackberry, cassis, spice and vanilla. Flavors of ripe blackberry, chocolate, and cinnamon, are enhanced with notes of soft vanilla. Tannins are firm in this medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, with pleasant toastiness emerging on the finish.
This wine has excellent, body, structure and noise. Amazing quality
Quite firm, with toasty oak framing black currant and herbal notes. Drink now through 2005.
