Drinking damn good right now. Just tried two different bottles, and they were consistent with each other. Soft with nice acidity, and multi-faceted

Love Palmaz wines (and I might love their winery tour over their wines, which says something about their tour). Elegant red, blue and black fruits. They rush at you, but give way to earthy and herbal secondary notes alongside Mexican vanilla. The finish is lengthy and velvet like. This is a Napa Cab that is so easy and enjoyable to drink.

Red fruited beauty. I'm always taken aback by how this winery knows how to withhold over manipulating a wine. Very beautiful.

Really love this wines red fruit tension against its firm tannin structure and balanced acidity. This could've went the way of too many overly manipulated wines with the technology this estate has, but it seems they know where to stop and let the fruit shine. @Capital Grill in Austin for Palmaz luncheon.

Deep, dark and barely showing signs of bricking. Aromatically, damp forrest floor, decaying oak leaves, subtle eucalyptus tones are primary, with roasted dates and mission fig supplying the fruit. The body is medium plus, with brilliant acidity to lift the palate from its concentrated fruit to its vivacious yet fine tannins, the wine really springboards to the next level on the finish, gripping and lasting for 30 plus seconds of dark, earth-driven delight.

Wonderful aromatics - sweet red berries and wet slate on a sunny day. A great finish dark berries and sweet tea. Great bottle and I can't wait to visit Palmaz Winery on my next trip to Napa!
