The 2006 vintage is a blend of estate Cabernet was selected from the best location of our three distinct elevation vineyards. The wine exhibits intense ripe flavors of blackberry, cassis and black cherry. Supple and refined in the pallet, this wine shows excellent balance with a long, moderately tannic finish. While this wine is drinking excellent now, the density and structure of this wine will allow it to mature elegantly for the next eight to ten years.
"From a 19th century vineyard site on the slopes of Mount George, east of the city of Napa, Palmaz rises from 400 to 1,400 feet. The higher elevations bring freshness to the blend, which ranges from dill to black pepper in spice, from silk to plush velvet in texture. This needs bottle age or decanting to get past its youthful green edge of reduction. Then serve it with Provençal lamb and roasted tomatoes."
