"A bold representation of the signature grape varietal of the Napa Valley, Palermo is a portrayal of the patchwork of vineyards across the region. With fruit sourced from the warmer Calistoga and St. Helena AVAs down to the cooler AVAs of Coombsvill e and Oak Knoll, across to the unique microclimates of Pope Valley and Atlas Peak and finally t o the famous soils of Rutherf ord and Oakville, this truly is the Napa Valley in a bottle . Working in the vineyards to meet our strict quality standards, we were able to produce a wine th at is both classically Cabernet, while staying true to our Orin Swift ethos."--Winery
"A dark garnet hue sits in the glass with immediate aromas of ripe cassis and blackberry . H ints of cocoa , new oak and fir complement the juicy fruit mélange. A full- bodied entry is succeeded by a mid - palate of dark fruits and a smooth, integrated minerality. The tannins are well developed, allowing the wine to finish with length."--Winemaker
Blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc and aged for ten months in 35% new French oak, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon gives up notions of stewed plums, baked blackcurrants and mulberries with hints of tobacco, sautéed herbs and damp soil with a touch of forest floor. Full-bodied, firm and chewy, it gives loads of savory layers and has an herbal lift on the finish. 15,000 cases produced.
