Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Ripe, with a bright edge to the mix of plum, loganberry and huckleberry flavors, backed by violet and anise notes and driving through the graphite-edged finish. Approachable already, but there's no rush. Drink now through 2031. 14,167 cases made.
Composed of Cabernet Sauvignon blended with a little Syrah and Merlot, the 2017 Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 12 months in oak (38% new). Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up expressive notions of baked plums, unsmoked cigars, Black Forest cake and crème de cassis with hints of wild sage, menthol and vanilla pod. Full-bodied and decadently fruited in the mouth, the palate has a firm, chewy texture and lovely freshness, finishing earthy. 400 cases were made.
