Sweet black cherries, cigar box and earth on the nose are the best part of the experience. The wine provides a dark cocoa and blackberry, dusty textured, cherry tinged finish. I remember this wine from years ago and found it markedly better in its early years.
first Fisher ever, thanks Bob V, nose was gigantic (as was nose on Lynch Bages '85 we drank alongside), and was absolutely quintessential cabernet -- and fantastic... don't know if this is 100% cab but the nose certainly suggested it, on the palate it was tight at first but fruit came forward a bit over two hours, still feels quite young to me... nice drink for sure
Stood upright for 2 days (quite a bit of sediment), decanted and consumed over 3 hours. Can't really add much to the notes below. A classy, mature mountain cab with blackberry, tobacco, green pepper, cassis, graphite, and still lingering grainy tannin. In fact, the tannin was just a bit out of whack, which kept this from scoring in the extraordinary category. 14%.
