For the king of reds, Gina looked to Napa Valley to craft a rich Cabernet Sauvignon. The addition of William Hill Estate Vineyard to our familys collection of vineyards gave Gina the opportunity to work with Cabernet grapes from an extraordinary benchland property in southern Napa. Blending this Cabernet with Petit Verdot grapes from Monte Rosso, our legendary mountaintop vineyard in Sonoma Valley, Gina made a robust, elegant wine to complement the Burgundy-style varietals in the Gallo Signature Series.
On the Palate
Our 2009 Gallo Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex wine with intense layers of blackberry and currant, framed by hints of chocolate and spice. Velvety tannins meld with hints of warm oak to create a long, supple finish. Gina chose to blend the Cabernet grapes with Petit Verdot to enhance the overall structure and add a deep richness to the mouthfeel.
