"With an intense and clear deep ruby red colour, this wine presents a marked bouquet of ripe berries and plums with herbaceous and slightly spicy notes. It is fresh to the palate, with good acidity and firm velvety tannins confirming all the previous fruitiness."
"92 Points- Wine Spectator. Fairly rich and concentrated, with excellent depth and a range of flavor built around dark berry, mocha, espresso, cedar and tobacco notes, turning graceful mid-palate and ending with a persistent finish. Offers ripe, interwoven tannins. Drink now through 2024."
"91 Points - Wine Spectator. A rich, sturdy, muscular style, with plenty of finesse and refinement. Offers a dark fruit core, with spice, cedar, dusty herb and earth notes. Taut tannins add to the texture and mouthfeel. Drink now through 2028"
"90 Points- Antonio Galloni. Lively red and dark berry scents are complemented by hints of anise, rose oil and mocha. Sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering intense raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of peppery spices. At once rich and energetic, this Cabernet Sauvignon finishes with nervy cut, supple tannins and a subtle touch of sweet berry fruit."
"Rich and full-bodied, Columbia Winery's Cabernet Sauvignon is well-structured with firm tannins and ripe dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black currant layered with notes of toasty oak and cocoa. Try Columbia Cabernet alongside hearty stews, roasts or wild game meats."
"Flavor notes of cherry and chocolate combine with sweet toasty oak for this full-flavored wine with a long complex finish."
"This wine has a brilliant red violet color. It displays aromas of ripe fruit like cherry, plum, tobacco and spices. The palate is round, fruity with pleasant tannins, representing faithfully the character of the variety. Pair with red meats and cheeses."
"90 Points- Vinous. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Coach Insignia is pretty, open and expressive. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and leather are all laced together nicely in the glass. The 2012 has developed very well since I last tasted it, but it remains decidedly medium in body and feminine in style. This is the most accessible of the Fisher 2012s."
"Aromas and flavors of black and red berries with a medium structure and a nice after- taste. Its soft and round tannins make this wine the perfect choice for red meats, stews or pasta with Bolognese sauce."
"This beautifully rich Cabernet has grace, power and sophistication. Its deep garnet depth will catch your attention while the complex layers of ripe black fruit, spicy cedar, violets & minerality will keep it. With hints of truffle oil, a slight meaty edge and perfect balance this full bodied elegant wine exhibits both power and finesse from its generous mouth feel to its long delicious finish."
