About the Winery
This Cabernet has a classic style and structure worthy of its heritage. After 86 years abandoned, the Palmaz family resurrected this historic wine. The label design was taken from a rubbing of the 1889 barrel brander.
(From 2010 Vintage) The aromas of our 2010 Palmaz Cabernet Sauvignon are reminiscent of of ripe black mission figs enlivened with a chiffonade of basil. From beginning to end the structure displays an elegant crescendo with a finale that begs for an encore.
