The aroma is evocative of huckleberry saltwater taffy, with equal emphasis on fruit and floral.
This Cabernet exhibits a notable mid-palate with a dense, compact structure.
The 2008 marks a moment in the vineyard’s development when the more mature vines contributed a riper tannin structure and silkier mouthfeel; it was a turning point toward the characteristic expression of the Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon.
Bottled April 2010.
Aged for 18 months in 85% new French oak.
The wine’s plush, gentle tannins allow it to shine with little support from a meal around it. This vintage pairs nicely with dark chocolate truffles and begs to steal the show as a stand-alone performance.
