1997 Fisher "Coach Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1997 Coach Insignia (77% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc) is powerful, with a seamless personality. The wine is moderately tannic and full-bodied, with loads of chocolatey, black cherry, and cassis fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2014.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep red-ruby color. Fruit-driven aromas of cassis, red and black cherry, mint, oak spice and tobacco. Lush, dense and smooth; not a huge wine but one with noteworthy balance and concentration. Finishes with very good persistence and nicely ripe tannins.
Rich and loamy, with fleshy currant, herb and sage, firming up on the finish, where it shows a cedary edge. (Web-2008)
