The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz The Signature is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Shiraz that spent 20 months in a combination of French and American hogsheads as well as smaller barrels. Its deep, sweet perfume of blackberries, camphor, damp earth, vanilla, licorice, and pepper is followed by a powerful, flavorful, intense wine revealing high tannins as well as impressive concentration. This superb Cabernet should easily age for 12-15 years.
Deep ruby. Spicy, intense aromas of cherry, cassis, cigar box and mace. The wine's bitter cherry, licorice and sweet tobacco flavors are held in check by juicy acids and solid structure. The cherry and licorice notes continue through the fresh, pliant, long finish. Quite impressive. (JR)
Firm, with grippy tannins around a core of cedary berry, licorice and herb flavors, which linger nicely. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Best from 2007 through 2012. 1,160 cases imported.
