Signorello Padrone 2014
|Region||United States, Napa Valley|
The blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the 2014 Proprietary Red Padrone shows serious levels of extract, nice blueberry and blackberry fruit, a touch of licorice and vanillin. It is not as seriously endowed as the 2013, but more open-knit and probably most consumers will enjoy it more over the next 15 or so years than the more tightly knit and more dense 2013. In any case, it is a beauty.
