Fisher Vineyards Unity Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Our original inspiration for UNITY, the Cabernet Sauvignon blend pays tribute to our early days by bringing the best of Napa Valley and Sonoma County together in one harmonious wine.Winery
Despite boasting a long track record that goes back to 1973 - long by California standards - Fisher remains an under the radar jewel of an estate making wines that are widely deserving of more attention. I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted during my most recent visit. Whitney Fisher and Adam Goodrich craft striking, classically-leaning wines from the Fisher family’s estate vineyards in Calistoga and Spring Mountain. The Chardonnays are representative examples of phenolic, mountain Chardonnay that sees 15-16 months in barrel, which is on the longer side for California. The bottled 2018 red wines are every bit as superb as I hoped they would be when I tasted several wines from barrel.
The 2018 Unity Cabernet Sauvignon is made with 66% Napa County fruit and 34% Sonoma County fruit. Medium to deep ruby-purple, it opens with notes of graphite and dust over a core of cassis with notes of boysenberry, cedar and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied, it has a core of sweet spice-laced fruits, a firm, grainy frame and just enough freshness on the finish.
