Vinous 92 points - Bright ruby. Intensely perfumed bouquet of smoky red and dark berries lifted by a sexy floral quality. Mineral-driven raspberry and blackcurrant flavors are underscored by tobacco and graphite elements and supported by a spine of zesty minerals. The smoky note defines the long, gently sweet finish. Lots going on here already, but give it some age.  (May 2009)

Wine Advocate 90 points - From a 1,400 foot elevation site, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Mountain Estate Vineyard offers sweet red and black currant notes interwoven with hints of truffles, damp earth, forest floor, lead pencil shavings, and flowers. It possesses excellent ripeness for a 2006, a dense, medium to full-bodied palate, and moderate tannins. This wine should drink well for 15 years. (Dec 2008)

Following more than 30 years adapting farming practices to the mountain climate and terrain around the winery, we are pleased to produce this wine from several Bordeaux varietal vineyard blocks yielding fruit of mature character and balance. The heart of this wine is Cabernet Sauvignon grown on steep, west facing terraces that rise above the early renowned Wedding Vineyard, reaching a towering elevation of 1,400 feet. Other contiguous vineyard blocks incorporate a great diversity of soils and exposures, providing additional complexity and unmistakable mountain terroir.
Producer
The winery was founded in 1973, when Fred and Juelle Fisher 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 onsite 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 the Lamb Vineyard Cabernet, Coach Insignia Cabernet and Cameron Bordeaux Blend. Fisher Vineyards' mission is to grow and produce wines of consistent, world-class quality that express their unique mountain or valley heritage in the truest sense of terroir, yielding classic balance and style that transcends time. The Coach Insignia honors Fisher's family's tradition of craftsmanship, first represented in fine automobiles of the 20th century with Body by Fisher and now in Fisher Vineyards' wines of the 21st century. The Coach Insignia Cabernet represents the pinnacle of their winemaking craft, comprised of the finest selected lots of Bordeaux varietals from their Napa Valley Estate.
