2012 Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine is extroverted and braggadocios. The warm weather of 2012, consistent and almost euphorically pleasant, produced fruit with exceptional ripeness and plush tannins. The explosive blackberry and vanilla aromas draw the attention of even the most distracted taster. The texture is satisfyingly rich, reminiscent of browned butter, with a finish that lingers on the palate. Quite ripe and satisfying alone, this wine can be enjoyed with hearty dishes such as braised short ribs, or enjoyed equally with fine dark chocolates and a cigar.
