2008 Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

This Cabernet exhibits a notable mid-palate with a dense, compact structure. The aroma is evocative of huckleberry saltwater taffy, with equal emphasis on fruit and floral. The 2008 marks a moment in the vineyard’s development when the more mature vines contributed a riper tannin structure and silkier mouthfeel; it was a turning point toward the characteristic expression of the Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine’s plush, gentle tannins allow it to shine with little support from a meal around it. This vintage pairs nicely with dark chocolate truffles and begs to steal the show as a stand-alone performance.
