2009 Palmaz Vineyards Gaston Cabernet Sauvignon

Reminiscent of picking berries in a forest, this wine features aromas of ripe fruit and earthy woodland floor. The wine’s mid-palate has a distinct weightiness that carries through to a lingering finish of broad, silky tannins. Opulent but not cloying, this vintage features grapes from the Tennis Court block — named for the court it surrounds — which was selected once before for Gaston, in 2005, and has long served as an estate favorite thanks to its yielding grapes of concentrated aromas and notable structure. This vintage pairs beautifully with coffee-crusted beef tenderloin or tea-smoked squab, where the savory and the earthy flavors play off one another.
