1991 Fisher "Coach Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
92 points Robert Parker (Dec 1994): "The Coach Insignia is an exceptional wine. It is one of the finest of the outstanding 1991 vintage. The opaque ruby/purple-colored wine offers a powerful, pungent nose of cassis, black fruits, chocolate, vanillin, and licorice. It oozes with super richness, full body, glycerin, and nicely hidden alcohol and moderate tannin in the finish. While the quantity produced (1,600 cases) will not make it the most widely available Cabernet Sauvignon, shrewd readers should be able to find a few bottles before it is scarfed up by Cabernet lovers. Approachable now, it has the potential to last for 15+ years. Drink 1994-2009. Fisher Vineyards, perched high in the mountains not far from the Sonoma/Napa county line, is making a bevy of profound wines that merit considerable interest. The rise in quality, complexity, and potential of Fisher's wines is one of the bright shining stories in recent California wine history. Proprietor Fred Fisher deserves considerable praise for moving his wines away from the tart, lean, highly acidified and processed, oenologically correct style, to wines bursting with personality, flavor, and high quality."
