2011 Palazzo Right Bank Proprietary Red Wine, USA, California, Napa - Wine Review

Grade: 
A-
Score: 
92

This is 68% Merlot, 22% Cab Franc and 10% Cab Sauv.  This saw 40% new oak.  1500 cases produce.  Purple in color.  The nose has coffee, bell pepper, cherries and slight tobacco.  Also a bit of bandaid.  It has a pretty, soft texture.  Cherries and spice on the palate.  Light tannins.  Tart on the finish in a good way.  Especially for the vintage, this is a nice "old school in style" red.  Would work well at the dinner table.  $75
