While the FDR1A is all about power The Signature provides a journey based on grace elegance and purity; fresh vibrant and completely unevolved the essency fruit is pure and poised and the tannins are silky and fine; the vibrancy of the fruit core is electric as is the persistence of the finish.

Pungent bouquet evokes cherry compote cassis pipe tobacco and rose with notes of vanilla and mocha gaining strength with air. Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors show impressive vivacity and pick up oak spice and herb character on the back half. Dusty tannins add shape to the long spicy appealingly sweet finish. Drinks easily now but this has the depth and balance to reward patience.

The 2006 The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz is composed of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Shiraz. Deep garnet-purple in color it offers intense notes of blackberry preserves warm cherries black currant cordial plus an earthy / gamey undercurrent and nuances of marmite toast. The tight-knit medium to full-bodied palate is firmly structured with a high level of grainy tannins high acid and just enough savory flesh giving a long finish. Approachable now it should be best from 2012 to 2018.
