Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Our 2017 Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon has a lovely bouquet of violet, ripe plum and a touch of cardamom. 

Palate: 

Dark fruit flavors of blackberry continue through to the palate and are met with brambleberry, mulberry and black licorice. This is a full-bodied and dense wine with elegantly structured tannins and a rich and lingering 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 49% new French oak. The tightly grained barrels provide textural complexity, added depth and a plush, full body.
