Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon (mainly Cabernet Sauvignon with splashes of Merlot and Malbec) opens with notions of crushed red currants, blackberries and mulberries with touches of Indian spices, sandalwood and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a wonderfully spicy undercurrent with loads of red and black fruits and a chewy frame, finishing long and perfumed.
Wine SpectatorDelicate 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.
