Made up of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5% Petit Verdot, 1.5% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Malbec, the 2012 Palmaz Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunning wine, because so much expense, care, and knowledge went into it. It could not be any other way. It offers up aromas of blackcurrant, bay leaf, marzipan, minerals, and shaved dark chocolate. Unfurling on the palate with a glorious inner-mouth perfume of black cherry jam and baking spices, this is not to be missed. It is a 10 to 30 year wine for sure.
