2015 Palazzo Red Cuvee, USA, California, Napa - Wine Review

Grade: 
A-
Score: 
90

This is blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 25% Cabernet Franc from fruit that was "declassified" from the top barrels.  It is meant to be more of a value offering.  Purple/ruby in color.  The nose has sandalwood, cedar, clay and cherries.  Also a bit of tarragon.  Medium bodied.  Firm tannins turning drying at the end.  On the palate, sour cherries.  Some depth.  Good finish.  There is some upside and this is young and should improve a bit.
