Palermo, the 2015 vintage was made for Cabernet Sauvignon. With low yields, small berries and lots of concentration,the array of fruit we were able to source was high in quality and replete with sensorial complexity. Featuring lots from allover the valley—from Atlas Peak to Coombsville, from Calistoga to the Rutherford Bench — this wine is a quintessential Napa Cab, made in the signature Orin Swift style.
Deep and luring aromas of raspberry and ripe cherry are intermingled with accents of star anise, five spice and freshly steeped black tea. The entry is smooth with a combination of cassis and black berry with a satiating suppleness. Ultra round and soft, the wine finishes with reverberating length.
Aged for 10 months in French Oak, 35% new
