Tasting Notes

Our flagship offering, Signature Cabernet Sauvignon, strikes a tightrope balance of youthful energy, structure, and restraint.

Rewarding with extraordinary depth and poise, the drinking pleasure of 2021 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon begins with notes of royal cassis that fan out on the palate and continue with silky black cherry and refined dark berry fruit framed by bakers’ chocolate, cedar, and toasted sage. A lush, supple midpalate displays firm yet suave tannins balanced by a juicy texture thanks to the Merlot contributed from the hillside estate vineyard. This is both a classic wine and vintage, with a flourish of brambly blackberry fruit lifted by accents of violets and bergamot that echo on the finish.

"Firm, dark-fruited and focused with aromas of dark cherries, dark plums, dried herbs, cedar and cloves. Well-balanced with a medium to full body and plush tannins. Generous and robust, with...a flavorful finish with good persistence."
