2012 Signorello Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

(0) No Reviews yet


One of our favorite wineries in the valley, this estate Cab can run with the big dogs any day of the week. Ripe opulence, heady dark aromas and a textural wonderland on the palate delivers the goods in the glass. Ray Signorello is one of the good guys, and this estate bottling named after his daughter is one you'll want for your cellar.

Details

We love those occasions when fate throws a wrench into someone's plan and everything turns out better than he ever could have mapped it himself. Such was the case with Ray Signorello Sr., who purchased a 100-acre estate in and around Napa Valley's Stags' Leap District with the plan to grow and sell grapes to existing wineries. All was going well until a surplus crop in 1985 left Ray with more fruit than he could possibly off-load. A glass half full kind of guy, Ray decided to give custom crush a shot. The results were so tasty; he realized that if he could make drinkable wine, then a real winemaker could work magic with such top-notch fruit. Since that 1985 experiment, Signorello has evolved into one of our favorite producers of small production Burgundian and Bordeaux-inspired wines. Ray Jr.'s focus is always on the fruit. Ray shares a similar vision with consulting winemaker Luc Morlet and winemaker Pierre Birebent - a vision favoring restraint and elegance to in-your-face and obvious.
