Straw colored in the glass, the 2010 Mountain Estate Vineyard Chardonnay shows aromas of honey pear, star jasmine and warm brioche. Smooth and supple on the palate with mineral tinged acidity that keeps the palate fresh. Flavors of lemon meringue, caramel buttered apple and ripe mission fig; great texture, viscosity and persistence.
Fisher’s 2010 Chardonnay Mountain Estate Vineyard is striking in its beauty. Butter, almonds, pear and chamomile wrap around the palate in this big, broad-shouldered wine. The 2010 is powerful and yet also voluptuous and beautifully balanced throughout. A huge, creamy finish rounds things out in style.
Founded in 1973 by Fred and Juelle Fisher, the winery is nestled at the 1500-foot elevation on the western face of the Mayacamas Mountains between the Napa and Sonoma Valleys and home to their Wedding Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Whitney's Vineyard Chardonnay. Their Coach Insignia Cabernet, Lamb Vineyard Cabernet and RCF Vineyard Merlot come from their estate on the Silverado Trail in the Napa Valley. It is from these two sites that the winery strives to fulfill their mission of producing world class Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
