A MESSAGE FROM BOUNTY HUNTER

MARCH 2021

WELCOME

WELCOME TO BOUNTY HUNTER It’s been a wild winter and, while we can almost smell the cherry blossoms on the trees, it looks like we’ll have to settle for black cherry aromas in the glass. Not the worst fate, all things considered! This time of the year is all about being ready for anything. One day you’re walking the beach in a down parka and the next you’re downhill skiing in a t-shirt. Whatever the weather brings, you’ll find the perfect wine to pair in these pages. This issue is all about those red giants that keep us warm all winter, and the producers who put the stars in the sky. Cozy up with a Cab or Prop Red and get ready to discover something new. There’s no winter so long that a great red wine can’t make it feel shorter.

It seems no Fisher can escape the lure of fine wine. Fred and Juelle started it all back in the 1970s when they founded – and planted – their vineyards and were married amongst the vines. The winery was blessed by the best, with Paul Hobbs as an early winemaker and David Abreu in the fields. Today, the Fisher kids find winery waters comfortable for navigating. Whitney Fisher has become winemaker extraordinaire and her siblings help steer the boat.

A striking expression of this multifaceted Spring Mountain site, the 2016 shows tremendous power and density. Notes of rose petal and lavender add lift to the deep layers of dark cherry, plum, and spice. Loads of mid-palate depth and richness call for a few years in the cellar to fully evolve.

Once known as Mount Eden, Newsom and Getty vowed to bring winemaking back to the historic, Oakville estate with a focus on world-class wine that would honor the land, the history, and the goal of making great wine more inviting and accessible.
