Tasting notes

“Smoky leather and cigar make for a formidable entry on the nose before huge, layered tannins rise to the fore. A balance of acidity and brightness lurks beneath the weight, rounded by succulent blackberry and black cherry. Cellar through 2022."

Rated 95 | Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Reflecting the strengths of Napa Valley's 2012 vintage, the Signature Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits beautiful layers of blueberry and black cherry aromas mingled with bittersweet cocoa, cinnamon and cigar box. Rich and dense on the palate, the wine is further enhanced by savory and earthbound elements of dried sage and French roast coffee.
