2004 Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

In 2004, production of Palmaz wines within the winery cave began. The use of gravity-flow methods sparked a shift to the elegant, balanced style that defines the wines today. The warm summer that year translated into an expressive fruit-forward wine. The explosive aromas of cocoa-dusted toffee and Armagnac-soaked dark cherry tease the palate; the vintage’s structure shows well-integrated tannins and an ample mid-palate. The inviting plush character pairs well with roasted pork loins and savory fruit compotes, or firm nutty cheese such as aged Gruyère.
