A vivid and complex wine, our 2010 Gallo Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon displays flavors of currant, cassis, dark fruit, chocolate and cherry on the palate. Velvety tannins meld with hints of warm oak to create a long, supple finish. Gina blended the Cabernet grapes with a touch of Petit Verdot to enhance the overall structure of the wine and add a deep richness to the mouthfeel.
"Sadly, only 500 cases were produced. Another big-time winner is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon (9,000 cases produced), which comes from the William Hill Estate Ranch and Monte Rosso vineyards. A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot aged 21 months in barrel, it tips the scales at 14.8% natural alcohol. Abundant aromas of black currants, unsmoked cigar tobacco, underbrush, cedar and Christmas fruitcake jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored, deep, full-bodied, rich wine. It should drink well for 10-15+ years. "
The Wine Advocate
"Charred but elegant oak on the nose, yet in harmony with the splendid blackcurrant fruit and discreet herbaceous lift. Full, sensuous palate with an inherent core of ripe fruit, cocoa and spice.
Drink 2014–2030 "
