2005 Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

This beautifully proportioned Cabernet Sauvignon features equal parts fruit, spice and structure. The aromas are reminiscent of a blackberry-almond croissant, both fruit-forward and mouthwatering. The French oak expresses an enticing spice overlay, lifting the aromas. Once on the palate, the umami-rich attack is cradled by fine-grain tannins. With its finely tuned balance and intensity, this vintage pairs well with robust meats such as seared aged beef tenderloin or bison filets. For an attractive counterpoint, consider the use of a mild spice, such as ancho chili rub or a chipotle-infused demi-glace.
