"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."
"96 Points- Wine Spectator. Fantastic aromas of crushed blackberry, raspberry and cherry follow through to a full-bodied palate, with a solid core of tannins and a long, long finish. Dense yet refined, with excellent richness and structure. This is stunning and only the second year from Brunello's great producer. 95 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 5 percent Sangiovese."
"92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Savory herbs, licorice, menthol, tobacco and plums grace a powerful, structured frame in this expressive, individualistic Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The aromas and flavors are quite vivid from start to finish."
"120 Cabernet has rich berry flavors, soft tannins, fruit and spice. It shows extraordinary aroma concentration, great structure and excellent balance. Medium bodied and fruit-forward with ripe, well structured tannins."
"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."
"Allspice and milk chocolate aromas are layered with sour cherry, cinnamon and mocha notes. The bright, wild berry fruit flavors will benefit from a bit of bottle age to allow the tightness wrapped around the mid-palate to relax. Brown sugar, root beer and roasted nuts will be highlighted when it all comes together."
"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."
"91 Points Wine Spectator The gripping tannins are evident early on, wrapped around a rich mix of red and black fruits, gaining depth and a range of flavors, with melted black licorice folding in. Ends with cedar-graphite tannins."
"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."
