2008 Palmaz Vineyards Gaston Cabernet Sauvignon

This vintage exhibits a commanding presence, beginning with a powerful attack and following through to a restrained and lengthy finish. The aromas feature a fresh, floral medley of boysenberry and shavings of cherrywood. The concentrated fruit came from the Ladera parcel, where a steep north-facing slope helps stress the vines. This year marked a shift in style with the Gaston wines, which grew in power and grace. This pairs nicely with dishes such as dark chocolate and candied beet bouchons, or fleur de sel dark chocolate truffles.
