2002 Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Randy Dunn at Dunn Vineyards crafted this vintage using Palmaz grapes, as the winery cave was still under construction in 2002. As a result, this wine features the cellar-worthy structure that’s the hallmark of Dunn’s wines. Aromas of Earl Grey tea and spearmint enliven the enticing core of dried fruits and nuts, the latter reminiscent of trail mix. The structure is sturdy and balanced with a firm, lingering finish. This wine pairs well with rich roasted meats such as lamb and beef ribeyes; it would also serve as a nice counterpoint to creamy washed-rind cheeses.
