2015 Palazzo Red Cuvée

There’s a cool 50% of Oakville Cabernet in this ripe, round, generous wine from Scott Palazzo, whose other wines typically run the $90-$150 range (and have some crazy-big press), so we lined up to be first to snag this new bottling -- a fantastic-drinking Cab/Merlot/Cab Franc blend that you MUST be drinking.

Nice to get a chance to revisit this.  It has come together nicely and improved a bit since release.   50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 25% Cabernet Franc.  This is made from those barrels which did not qualify for the top wines.  Purple in color with some ruby at the rim.  The nose is nice with cherries, tobacco, sour cherries, sandalwood and anise.  On the palate, this is drinking great.  I doubt it gets any better but certainly has another five years.  Lots of red fruits and a bit darker with some earthiness.  Light tannins.  Nice finish.  This will go with a wide variety of foods and is great on its own.  Grilled meats or even pasta dishes will be great.
