Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of coffee, raspberry creme, and dark chocolate arise from the glass. Second aromas of fresh tilled soil and black cherries add to the complex nose. On the palate, the rich mouth-feel is layered with flavors, raspberries, and dark chocolate. Toasty oak and a touch of vanilla enhance the well integrated tannins and impressive length. This is a balanced wine with power and grace.

About Signorello:

Raymond Signorello Sr. and his son, Raymond Jr, founded Signorello Vineyards in 1985. The are producers of estate grown and produced varietals including Seta, a proprietary blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc; Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Signorello's Padrone is dedicated to Ray Signorello Sr. who passed away in 1998, a visionary whose dreams became a reality in the wines at Signorello. The grapes used for this Bordeaux blend are sourced from an extemely rocky portion of the estate vineyards yeilding a mere 1.5 tons per acre. The 1999 Padrone is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 8.5% Cabernet Franc and is fitting tribute to the life of Ray Signorello Sr. - the Padrone.
