The Character

Tasting Notes Rich, dynamic and concentrated, the 2018 “Padrone” Cabernet Sauvignon is a striking wine. This vibrant, dense Cabernet is packed with black cherry, red and black currant, plum and blueberry jam. This stunning bouquet is wonderfully nuanced with licorice, menthol, lavender and dark chocolate. Opulent and big bodied, the mid-palette is weighted leading into a vibrant finish of tobacco leaf, herbal tea, and mocha. Deeply textured with exception balance, this wine will reveal so much more in the years to come.

The Story

Padrone was created in honor of Ray Signorello, Sr., a visionary whose life was as full of character as our wines. It is a seamless integration of supple tannins, intense varietal aromas and rich flavor that expresses the utmost quality of the Estate. The grapes for this proprietary Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from the best blocks of our extremely rocky hillside vineyard. This is a deeply concentrated wine with layers of complexity designed for extended aging.

Brand Story

Signorello Estate was co-founded by father-son duo Ray Sr. & Ray Jr. Signorello. Their French-style wines are created from 100% estate grown Napa Valley fruit. Nestled in the southeastern corner of Napa Valley alongside the famed Silverado Trail, the estate is comprised of 42 planted acres (17 ha). The vineyard site is 100% hillside, varying in slope from gentle to steep, and is composed of well-drained volcanic rocks & soil.
Fruit is hand-picked & hand-sorted. Wines are fermented with native yeast & bottles without fining or filtration. Signorello's total production is less than 6,000 cases annually, & often much less.
