Winemaker's Notes

The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon has been our flagship wine for more than three decades. It is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley; full of structure and ageing potential, yet seductively forward in its concentrated varietal character. The dry, rocky soils of Pritchard Hill produce small, intensely flavorful grapes. Crop thinning allows for full, even ripening and elevates flavor complexity.

Cinnamon and cocoa scents mingle with the aromas of black cherry, blackberry, and toasty oak. Robust flavors of espresso and red and black fruits layer deep into the core of this delicious wine. Elegant tannins round into the firm backbone of the wine, while an impression of bittersweet chocolate hangs gently on the aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

"This is the winery's basic Cabernet, but there’s nothing common about it. It’s dry and complex and moderately ageworthy, a hillside Cabernet that revels in its plush, firm tannins and ripe fruit. There’s a minerality that seems to come from the soil, with expressive blackberry, currant, chocolate and anise flavors. Really fine now after a decant, and should develop through this decade."
94 Points

"Very tightly wound, firm and taut, rich and full-bodied, offering intense mineral, blackberry, plum and currant fruit, with floral and sage hints. Ends with gripping tannins, but on the finish the flavors slowly unwind and expand. Needs time. Decant. Best from 2011 through 2020."
92 Points

"Mochachino scents of oak come first, followed by a blast of cherry fruit, the chocolate and cherry flavors expanding into a vast wine, crushed by a mineral stomp of tannin in the end. This is powerful without being superripe or hot, just impressively huge. Serve it to your power-hungry friends."
92 Points

"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with sweet tannin, lots of blueberry, boysenberry and black currant fruit, a hint of spring flowers, a medium to full-bodied texture, and a supple, seamless personality. It should drink well for 15 or more years."

A wonderful wine with an inviting floral nose. On the palate one will enjoy black cherry, blueberry, anise, and black currant. It is positively jammy and fills the palate! The wine is well structured and smooth with beautifully balanced tannins and fruit. Finally, the finish is equally smooth and lingering with a delightful presence of chocolate! This vintage has definitely benefitted from patience! I highly recommend it if it can be found.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
