2003 Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

After producing two vintages, the farming team chose to change the trellis system in the vineyard from Cain to Cordon pruning in 2003. This change in vine management reduced the quantity of fruit available, and as a result, very little wine was produced that year. The aromas of this vintage are a crescendo of butterscotch and anise with a blueberry center. In the glass and the bottle, this wine is always evolving, opening up slowly over time. With each successive year, this wine has shown great development and an enduring firm finish. It pairs well with delicate red meats such as squab and duck, and nicely complements fruit-based savory sauces such as a raspberry demi-glace.
