    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine shows full-bodied flavors of dark cherry and cocoa powder, with under tones of pepper and spice. Hints of toasty oak giveway to velvety tannins in a long, lush finish. To round out the mouth feel and create a rich complexity, Gin ablended the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with Petit Verdot and PetiteSirah.

    Critical Acclaim:

    With this new line, Gallo once agin strives to redefine itself, with positive results. Bearing Gina Gallo's signature, it's a fine Cabernet, soft, dry and complex, with flavors of blackberry, black currand and cedar. The structure is all about Napa Valley, showing ripe, smooth tannins and a good bite of acidity. Rally a superior Cab, one to drink now and over the next 6 years.

    Rustic and chewy, with a dense mix of loamy earth, crushed rock, black licorice, blackberry, cedar and tobacco, ending with a return to the wine's chewy attributes. This wine finds Gallo working with Napa grapes. Drink now through 2020.

    Very nice wine. Opened up nicely after about 30 minutes. Drinkable now, but some age would not hurt it. The bit of Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah added here make this wine really come through. Was dubious about Gallo name, but this is not Ernest and Julio's wine. Gina Gallo shows her skills here. Will buy more.
