Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc and aged for ten months in 35% new French oak, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon gives up notions of stewed plums, baked blackcurrants and mulberries with hints of tobacco, sautéed herbs and damp soil with a touch of forest floor. Full-bodied, firm and chewy, it gives loads of savory layers and has an herbal lift on the finish. 15,000 cases produced.
Delicate for this size, with a supple mix of loamy earth, red and dark berry, anise and oak flavors, this red maintains posture but loses velocity. Drink now through 2025. 20,000 cases made.
