2006 Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

This vintage exhibits the curious duality of being both gentle and firm. The generous and open introduction leads to a structured, focused finish. Upon release, this wine was tight and reserved; after five years it matured into a compelling expression of white chocolate and boysenberries. The gentle opening of this wine makes it extremely versatile to pair; it goes well with simple dishes that allow its delicacy to shine, such as a wild mushroom risotto or an assorted cheese platter with cured olives and crusty bread. The lingering finish features chalky tannins.
