The 2016 Padrone is a beautiful wine that exudes concentration, depth and balance. The complex bouquet of blackberry, cassis, licorice, lavender, dark chocolate and spice asserts its terroir in a striking manner. The tannins are powerful yet exceptionally balanced yielding a juicy and plush mouthfeel. Time in the glass only reveals further complexity with lifted notes of tobacco, plum, hints of espresso and sage. The 2016 is evocative and full of promises to get further nuanced with cellar age.

A wine of real density and power, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Padrone hits the palate with a rush of blackcurrant, lavender, mint, licorice, blood orange and scorched earth. Deep, virile and broad on the palate, the 2013 captures the natural structure of the vintage. Best of all, it should drink well with just a few more years in bottle.

Made up of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot (bottled in June 2018), the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Padrone opens with youthful, very primary notes of red and black currants, crushed plums and black raspberries with touches of cinnamon stick, Marmite toast, pencil shavings, lavender and black soil. Medium-bodied with great vibrancy and freshness plus a fine-grained frame of tannins supporting the red and black fruits, it finishes with a lovely herbal lift. 1,115 cases made.

Ray Signorello’s Padrone bottling, named in honour of his father Ray Signorello Sr, hails from the estate’s best blocks and barrels, typically the older vines on hillside sites. Aged in 100% new French oak, this is a denser, richer and flamboyantly ripe wine with even more flesh on its bones: the quintessential modern Napa Cab. Generous aromas of cassis, anise and plum. Bright acidity whips through the palate and keeps it strong and fresh, and the tannins and oak have been meticulously well managed.
