Palazzo Napa Valley 2004
The nose has wonderful aromas of blueberry and black cherry fruit with hints of cocoa, cinnamon and cassis... which will only continue to develop with age... On the palate the wine is full-bodied with a lush, supple texture and rich mouth feel... and wonderful layers of rich cherry and blackberry fruit…the tannins are noticeable but sweet and the wine possesses the purity and muscle of my '03 vintage... with a long rich finish of deep dark fruit.
Another exciting "Right Bank" style wine from Napa. I have to admit I am becoming more and more enamored with this style. The wine is smooth like velvet, there are spice notes all around with red and black fruits lead by cassis. Some smoke and wood notes along the finish. Another wine to show how Merlot can lead and be the star in a blend.
