2009 Gallo Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex wine with intense layers of blackberry and currant, framed by hints of chocolate and spice. Velvety tannins meld with hints of warm oak to create a long, supple finish. Gina Gallo chose to blend the Cabernet grapes with Petit Verdot to enhance the overall structure and add a deep richness to the mouthfeel.
Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot
"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Gallo Signature Series wraps around the palate in the layers of mocha, chocolate, plums tobacco and sweet spices. The 2009 is round, supple and inviting from start to finish. Sweet floral notes meld into cloves on the rich, resonant finish. This delicious, harmonious wine should drink well for at least the next handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. "
