Gallo Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Gallo Signature Series|
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley comes sashaying out of the glass with floral notes of violets and lilacs over a core of warm cassis, baked black cherries and mulberries plus touches of cedar and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is an exercise in poise with lovely fine-grained tannins and well-knit freshness supporting the bold black fruits, finishing long and fragrant. Terrific value! 485 cases were made.
Plush, sizable tannins wrap around a generous core of oak and body in this robust red. Black currant, cedar and crushed rock flavors complement each other, leading the way to a finishing touch of mocha.
This is dark and winey, showing steeped black currant and fig notes entwined with baker's chocolate and loam accents. The fruit is solid but lacks a bit of range, and the finish flirts with a woodsy edge, making this a bit stolid in feel. Drink now through 2026. 4,824 cases made.
