2001 Palmaz Vineyards Gaston Cabernet Sauvignon

Compact and lean, this premier release of the Gaston Cabernet Sauvignon marked the beginning of a study in single varietal expression. Produced at Randy Dunn’s Howell Mountain winery, it carries the firm structure that is the hallmark of the Dunn style. The 2001 vintage exhibits aromas of dried rose petal and cranberries, with undertones of leather. The acid bursts onto the palate and carries through to a refreshing finish. This Cabernet Sauvignon is reminiscent of classic Bordeaux, featuring firm tannins and alluring brown flavors. Pairs beautifully with hearty braises such as beef bourguignon and braised lamb shanks.
