New Signorello Vintages

Signorello Estate makes limited quantities of premium varietals that blend classic French wine making characteristics with California fruit. Their style of winemaking is directly tied to the vineyards. They strive for lush, concentrated fruit flavors, and good acid balance in all of the wines. The goal is to have wines with early accessibility, as well as the potential to develop additional complexity as they mature.


 The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate emerges from the glass with layers of smoke, mocha, spices, licorice and leather. It shows gorgeous inner perfume allied to dark tonalities of fruit in a deep, richly expressive style. The explosive finish makes it hard to resist a second taste. This is a highly promising wine. It is also more interesting than the Padrone at this stage. The 2010 is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. $89.99.

 

 

 

The 2010 Chardonnay Hope's Cuvee is rich, explosive and beautifully layered. Honey, almonds, orange blossoms and butterscotch all burst onto the palate in a voluptuous creamy style of Chardonnay long on balance and harmony. Anticipated Maturity: 2012-2018. $69.99.
