Quartet of Padrone Big Bottles


Your ample lot includes four 3-liter bottles of Signorello Estate's Padrone Cabernet Sauvignon, with the following notes provided by the Wine Advocate for each wine:


2002 Padrone - "This serious wine boasts an opaque purple color along with a beautiful perfume of subtle barbecue smoke, camphor, charcoal, ink, blueberry liqueur and crème de cassis. Ripe and full-bodied with sensational density, purity and richness, it is still quite youthful and should actually improve over the next 5 to 6 years. It will last for two decades thereafter."


2006 Padrone - "Chocolate truffle, black currant, espresso roast, tobacco leaf and subtle oak aromas soar from the glass of this deep, saturated purple-colored 2006. The wine possesses terrific fruit purity and intensity as well as a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a dense, concentrated finish with moderately high tannins. This is a big, muscular, impressively endowed wine that should age effortlessly for 25 years or more."


2012 Padrone - "This is a fabulous wine, meant to evolve over three decades. It offers up notes of charcoal, scorched earth, black currant, blackberry, chocolate and a touch of espresso. A wine of great intensity, full-bodied opulence and a multilayered mouthfeel, this is a formidably endowed, serious Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine from vineyards with some of the best fruit on the estate. Drink it over the next 30 years."


2018 Padrone - "It comes galloping out of the glass with energetic scents of warm cassis, freshly crushed black cherries, boysenberries and wild sage, plus suggestions of fragrant earth, black truffles and unsmoked cigars with a waft of cedar chest. The medium- to full-bodied palate is an exercise in elegance, delivering beautifully ripe, finely grained tannins and seamless freshness to support the intense black fruit and savory layers, finishing long and perfumed."
