For those of you who don’t know, it all started here. With this wine! Before there was aPALAZZO Cabernet Franc made for the French Laundry... or a PALAZZO Cuvée Blancmade from ‘crazy 70+ year old’ Semillon vines ... there was the 1st vintage of PALAZZO 2003 ‘Right Bank’ Proprietary Red Wine! And it was this wine that caughtthe attention of Top Sommeliers & Chefs across the country!
The new PALAZZO 2014 'Right Bank' RESERVE Proprietary Red Wine continues in the ‘style & legacy’ of the previous 12 vintages that have come before it!
The wine has exceptional character and beauty! Floral and intriguing on the nose,complex & rich with delicious layers of red cherry & blackberry fruit on the palate, and balanced throughout with good acidity, minerality & structure! In essence ... A Great Food Wine!
As always, Merlot makes up the lion’s share of the blend ... giving the wine its sheer power & strength, silky texture, and beautiful layers of rich cherry & blackberry fruit. The Cabernet Franc adds brightness, acidity and ‘floral notes’ to the wine. While the Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure & character ... with hints of dark chocolate, earth,minerality, and cocoa & espresso bean to the finish.
The goal at PALAZZO WINE is, and always will be, to produce beautiful wines of out-standing quality, with distinction and class! Wines that are both ‘powerful & elegant’and pair well with a broad range of foods! … Reminiscent of the style and quality of wines that come from the wonderful ‘Right Bank’ region of Bordeaux, France!
