Palmina Barbera Walker Vineyard 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit marked by wood on the nose,black cherry, savory natural yeast elements adding detail and complexity, along with a superfine leather edge. This opens with big fruit that's wonderfully fresh with vibrant acids that are very well integrated. There’s lots of cherry skin fruit with underlying wood spice adding some depth in the mouth, and a lovely black plum note, along with hints of sweet licorice and leather on the back end. This finishes up with a super blend of ripe fruit flavors, gorgeous purity of fruit, and a very fresh texture, lively and vivid. 91pts

Palmina is more than a winery and enoteca. It is a philosophy and it is a passion. It is a strongly held belief that wine is an extension of the plate, a component of a meal and a means to bring people together. Formed by winemaker Steve Clifton in 1995, Palmina is named in honor of Steve’s great friend Paula, who taught him to love cooking, wine and the Italian lifestyle and who was a spark in Steve’s life. After Paula succumbed to breast cancer, Steve found that her given name on her Italian birth certificate was Palmina, and the winery was thus fittingly named. Read less
