Tasting notes

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 with blackberry, dried fig and anise flavors, the wine is further enhanced by savory and earthbound elements of dried sage and French roast coffee. The tannins are firm, refined and mineral-laden, offering a complete, long-term and rewarding wine experience.
