2006 Vintage, Hanging with Nithin and Dad 7-25-20 — 10 days ago
Deep, deep ruby. Wide brim with cherry accents. Beautiful aromatics of stewed plums, milk chocolate, cedar, and ripe red cherries. Yes, you can make the claim that this yet another Merlot that drinks like a Cab and you wouldn’t necessarily be wrong. For me, this is a quintessential Napa Merlot, big and bold with more than enough finesse to separate it from Cabs. Medium to full bodied with round tannins and medium acidity. Just enough fruit on the palate with black cherry, more plums, and cherries. The savory aspects come into play with forest floor, black olives, and oak. Wonderful length and spice on the finish.

Decanted for about an hour, and it just flowered, still drinking beautifully, eucalyptus, mint, cedar, spice, this is a big wine, some plum and cherries on the nose, finished with a dark chocolate, the mouth feel was silky. Fabulous! — 3 years ago
Aromatics of black fruits and a touch of wood but ultimately pretty muted. Black berry and black currant dipped sweet green tobacco leaf coat the palate along with some cedar. A pretty juicy textbook Cabernet that’s missing just a bit of tension. Delivers for the price. — 3 years ago
Understated but beautiful minerality. A bit of kerosene and cedar. Yet, fresh with citrus notes and ends on a fleeting moment of smokiness. — 3 years ago
Palmaz second label, juicy AF great stuff — 5 months ago
Massive dark earthy tones. Cedar, dark toasted oak, deep terroir on the nose and palate. Very dark inky color. Incredible legs.....long long finish. With such a limited production, you just know this gonna be big and gorgeous and something extraordinary. This can lay for years.....thankfully many bottles still in the cellar. Will only get bigger with the time.... — 3 years ago
