Winemaker's Notes:

This wine shows full-bodied flavors of dark cherry and cocoa powder, with under tones of pepper and spice. Hints of toasty oak giveway to velvety tannins in a long, lush finish. To round out the mouth feel and create a rich complexity, Gin ablended the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with Petit Verdot and PetiteSirah.

About Gallo Signature Series:

The Gallo Signature Series honors the journey the Gallo Family started in 1933, and it celebrates how far the family has come. With some of California's best grapes at her fingertips, third-generation winemaker Gina Gallo has created three distinct wines that could only be crafted from the Gallo family's unique combination of vineyards. For Gina, the Gallo Signature Series expresses her family's unique combination of vineyards. For Gina, the Gallo Signature Series expresses her family's passion for great vineyards and great wine, and it reflects the best the Gallo Winery has to offer. The Gallo Signature Series marks a return to hands-on, artisanal winemaking for Gina, and it brings to life the enduring legacy of Ernest and Julio Gallo.
