Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
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 SpectatorPure and spicy, with a firm core of creamy, oak-laced dark berry, licorice, currant and blackberry flavors, firming on the finish. A style that will appeal to those who like to chew on their wines. Drink now through 2024.
