2005 Napa Valley Red Wine
Napa Valley ‘Right Bank’ Bordeaux Style Wines

 

Robert Parker – Wine Advocate (93 Points)
“This blend of 70% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon may be the finest wine to emerge from Scott Palazzo, who makes only 1,100 cases of an unfined/unfiltered, French-styled red. The sexy, Pomerol-styled 2005 exhibits aromas of chocolate, espresso roast, sweet cherries, and black currants. The fragrant bouquet is followed by a silky-textured, medium to full-bodied wine with lush, mocha-infused flavors that cascade over the palate. Drink this beauty now and over the next 10-12 years. ”

My love affair with the wines produced from the Bordeaux region of France began almost 30 years ago… Particularly, wines from the small, family owned Chateau’s that dot the rolling hillsides of the beautiful ‘Right Bank’ region of that enchanted wine area. It is from there that my inspiration and passion for producing my wine continues to come.

I am very excited about the release of my new PALAZZO 2005 Napa Valley Red Wine! Continuing in the style and quality of my previous vintages, this is a beautifully complex wine… with wonderful layers of rich fruit, soft tannins… and a lush, supple texture on the palate!

Merlot makes up the lion share of the blend… giving the wine its sheer power & strength, silky texture and beautiful layers of dark cherry & blackberry fruit. The Cabernet Franc adds brightness, acidity and ‘floral overtones’ to the wine… with the Cabernet Sauvignon adding structure and character to the wine… with hints of smoke, cocoa and espresso bean to the finish.

Our goal at PALAZZO is, and always will be to produce beautiful wines of outstanding quality, with distinction and class! Wines that are both “powerful & elegant”… and that pair well with a broad range of food… Reminiscent of the style and quality of wines that come from the wonderful ‘Right Bank’ region of Bordeaux, France!
