Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Our 2016 Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon opens with dark fruit aromas of blackberry with light touches of violet and cardamom.

Palate: 

Full-bodied and dense on the palate, this wine displays flavors of brambleberry, mulberry and cedar. This is an elegant wine with structured tannins and a richness that carries through on the lingering finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The grapes for our Signature Series Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon are grown in six prestigious vineyards from the western and southern reaches of Napa Valley including our Rutherford estate, St. Helena and Oakville. The gravelly and sedimentary rock soils of our Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards strain the vines resulting in small, intense berries with concentrated flavors.
