Signature represents our best Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon blend from our estate-grown vineyards. Winemaker Mario Monticelli meticulously evaluates every barrel; only those with superior aromatics and flavor intensity become potential candidates for the final wine. Extremely limited in production, our Signature Blend is comprised of approximately eight hand-selected barrels.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Mario’s Vineyard, St. Helena Named for our pioneering founder Mario Trinchero, this rare jewel of a site surrounds our winery in St. Helena, along a narrow, 13-acre stretch of the valley floor formed by river erosion. A northwest exposure, coupled with a mix of gravel, loam and alluvial soils, translates to impressive structure and velvety tannins in the glass. Haystack Vineyard, Atlas Peak Haystack Vineyard is nestled high in Atlas Peak, Napa Valley’s most elevated appellation, perched 1,500 feet above sea level in the Vaca Mountains. This craggy, extremely rocky site stresses the vines, resulting in small, intensely concentrated berries. Central Park West Vineyard, St. Helena High above the Napa Valley floor in the Mayacamas Mountains, our Cloud’s Nest Vineyard embodies the greatness of the Mt. Veeder appellation. This highaltitude vineyard is incredibly steep with gravelly soil, and like all of our vineyards, must be patiently farmed by hand. Its cool, eastern exposure allows for extended hang time, which imbues the grapes with greater complexity and character.
Production Notes
The 2013 growing season in Napa Valley was preceded by an exceptionally dry winter. It began with an early bud-break, followed by mild spring weather with very little threat of frost. Consistently warm temperatures throughout the summer, coupled with Napa Valley’s signature cool nights and foggy mornings, ensured slow and even ripening of the fruit, with slightly higher yields than previous years. Autumn brought ideal conditions for a smooth harvest, delivering a vintage of exceptional quality.
Winemaker Notes
“Our Signature Cabernet Sauvignon shows great depth of character and intensity in the glass. The opaque ruby-purple hue hints at concentrated aromas of blackberry, bittersweet chocolate and roasted espresso, framed by pronounced minerality. The palate is broad and opulent, with notes of black fruit, currant, violets and graphite. The finish reveals additional layers of complexity, with waves of spice and minerals atop an exceptionally rich texture and firm tannins.” – Mario Monticelli
