2011 Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon "Brasas"

This cool vintage features a distinct harmony of fruit and wood. The interlaced aromas of fresh blackberries, bramble and forest floor invite the mind to hike along a trail that leads the taster to a precise, focused finish. On the palate, the savory umami texture of this wine complements the rich salt crust of a perfectly seared steak. The blend’s structure features the Cabernet Sauvignon of our highest-elevation vineyard, as well as the plush middle of our Malbec, and promises to reward the most dedicated grillmaster’s efforts when paired with steaks.
