Fisher Coach Insignia Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006

External Review by We Speak Wine:

(Includes just under 2% malbec) Bright red. Sharply focused redcurrant and cherry scents are complemented by tobacco and brown spices. Deeper cassis and bitter cherry on the palate, along with spicecake and succulent herb qualities. Combines power and depth smoothly, finishing with slow-building sweetness and excellent clarity. Both the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Coach Insignia and 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Lamb Vineyard are more angular, revealing some of the vintage's shortcomings. The tannins are relatively elevated, and both reveal a slight herbaceousness. Nevertheless, both wines are at least very good, but just not as impressive as their siblings.
