Our powerful boldest premium reds, dark, age-worthy wines of substance. Regardless of their grape, these heavyweights are barrel-aged and quite concentrated in flavor.

FOOD PAIRING: These big reds perform best with rich, high-protein foods such as AGED CHEESES & RED MEATS and work brilliantly with RICHER, BOLDER SAUCES too.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Our 2020 Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon has a gorgeous spray of lavender, fresh plum and a touch of spice.

Palate: 

Expressive flavors of raspberry and blackberry continue through to the palate and are greeted with mulberry and anise. This is a rich and full-bodied wine with tastefully structured tannins and a luxurious and lengthy finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The grapes for our Signature Series Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon are grown in seven prestigious vineyards from the western and southern reaches of Napa Valley including our Rutherford estate and vineyards in St. Helena and eastern hillsides of Napa. The gravelly and sedimentary rock soils of our Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards strain the vines resulting in small, intense berries with concentrated flavors. After the grapes were hand-picked and sorted the fruit went through extended maceration before being aged for 18 months in 51% new French oak. The tightly grained barrels provide textural complexity, added depth and a plush, full body.
