Palmina Nebbiolo Santa Ynez Valley Stolpman Vineyard 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Light, bright red. Vibrant, expressive nose evokes wild red berries, cherry, fresh flowers and Asian spices. Silky and bright in the mouth, with zesty acidity lifting the redcurrant, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors. Shows impressive balance and sweetness and finishes with fine-grained tannins and building sweetness. (Nov/Dec 2012) Less than 150 cases produced.

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.

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

Old wood greets the nose along with lots of bay leaf infused wild cherry, rose petal and alum scented Nebbiolo fruit that gains a carob and medicinal herb note. This is chalky and just a bit spicy on the nose with an enticing edginess. Powerful and bright on entry with tense transparent fruit, the mid-palate reveals this to be a bit of a fruity style of Nebbiolo but one that is firmly and impressively structured with deep earth tinged wild raspberry and wild cherry flavors that gain some complexity in the mouth from a subtle hint of vanilla and dried herb notes that turn towards fennel on the long, bright clear finish. Powerful, deep and just showing a hint of herb on the long finish. 92pts
