Fountainhead Cellars

Fountainhead Cellars With a goal to make great Napa Valley wines, Jason and Michelle Fisher and Sam and Traci Sharp established Fountainhead Cellars in 2002. The couples' combined experience in winemaking, wine sales, and marketing helped realize this ambitious project, a label based on distinct, vineyard-designated wines offered at affordable prices. Extensive grower contacts led them to Rutherford's Morisoli Borges Vineyard, which was the source for their first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon in 2002. Other vineyard designates will follow, each wine produced by Fountainhead will reflect both the site from which it is made and the owners' shared passion for wine.

  Fountainhead Cellars Morisoli Borges Cabernet Sauvignon
With great patience, Jason and Mike have crafted another stellar example of the Morisoli-Borges vineyard. It’s a flat-out fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon. Densely structured, with fine, integrated tannins, this beautifully dark wine opens up slowly in the glass to reveal an intriguing nose of haunting, woodsy-mushroom aromas and high-toned cherry seltzer and raspberry liqueur. Showing strong hints of Rutherford dust on the nose and palate, the wine tastes of rich black cherry, plum, and blackberry, brightened by firm acidity. Like many young Napa Valley Cabernets, it’s quite enjoyable at this early stage, but it’s also an eminently age-worthy wine that should improve with several years in the bottle. The miniscule, 200-case production includes a handful of magnums. A word to the wise amongst our friends and customers: the 2004 production will be half of the ’03, so we hope you will take advantage.
