When the ‘stars align’ and everything during the growing season goes just right… and you’re diligent in the vineyards, as well as throughout the picking and sorting process of the grapes…with a meticulous eye for detail & quality…then and only
then is it possible to make Cabernet Franc at a ‘World-Class’ level! With the delicacy and floral bouquet of violets & cassis, the complexity and balance of just the right amount of fruit & spice, and the opulent texture & mouthfeel of a beautifully bold, yet elegantly balanced red table wine…known as Cabernet Franc!
My PALAZZO 2013 Cabernet Franc is all these things…and more! Coming off of the much lauded World Class 2012 vintage in the Napa Valley, it’s hard to believe (and possibly awkward to say) that the 2013 follow-up vintage just might be superior to the 2012! At first, critics and friends thought we were just ‘stacking the deck’ and over promoting the 2013 Vintage. But as the wines developed and gained their nuance, depth and complexity in bottle…the popular consensus
is YES!! Napa Valley followed up the world-renowed 2012 Vintage with an even ‘greater vintage’ in the 2013 wines!!! How lucky am I to get to make wines in this amazing place…known worldwide…as the Napa Valley!
Robert Parker – Review
“Another of the profound Cabernet Francs from Scott Palazzo, and to me, one of the two best he has made to date (the other being the 2007) is the 2013 Cabernet Franc. When I tasted it, it had only been in bottle about five weeks, but it was locked and loaded. Dense purple, with notes of forest floor, incense, violets, black cherries and black raspberries, some foresty notes are also present. The wine is full-bodied, opulent, with great acidity, vigor and delineation. This is a sensational example of Cabernet Franc and certainly one of the finest 100% Cabernet Franc cuvées money can buy from California. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.”
