2010 Palmaz Vineyards Gaston Cabernet Sauvignon

The perfect replacement for an after-dinner coffee, the 2010 Gaston’s olfactory mélange mimics a French-pressed brew, down to the lingering aromatic titillation of coffee grounds, chicory and fresh blackberries. The tannins are likewise reminiscent of a dark roast with a long, lingering finish. The fruit featured in this vintage hailed from the Redwoods parcel, named for its lane of old redwood trees. These win the fight for resources with the neighboring vines, forcing the latter to struggle — yielding grapes of great concentration and focus, but few of them. Pairs well with dark chocolate-covered espresso beans.
