Composed of Cabernet Sauvignon blended with a little Syrah and Merlot, the 2017 Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 12 months in oak (38% new). Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up expressive notions of baked plums, unsmoked cigars, Black Forest cake and crème de cassis with hints of wild sage, menthol and vanilla pod. Full-bodied and decadently fruited in the mouth, the palate has a firm, chewy texture and lovely freshness, finishing earthy. 400 cases were made.

A seamless assortment of classic Napa Cabernet aromas exude from the glass—cassis, black cherries, chaparral and a touch of intriguing butterscotch. On the palate, the wine is tastefully expressive with ripe raspberry, crème caramel, bay leaf and two types of currants—red and black. Carrying its own weight through the finish, the wine’s prominent tannins will soften over time.
