ORIN SWIFT 2017 PALERMO CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY
Rich aromas of seasoned oak meld effortlessly with ripe boysenberry and candied cassis. The entry of the wine is soft and delicate, but quickly evolves into a serious mid-palate replete with opulent and concentrated flavors of dark fruits. Black currant and kirsch provide background to lively raspberry and cherry notes that create a near endless finish.
Palermo is our most geographically diverse wine from our Cabernet Sauvignon program. Drawing upon all major growing regions within the Napa Valley, fruit is meticulously selected from our expansive vineyard network. This pursuit allows us to showcase the range and prestige of its varying microclimates and soil profiles. Or, what we like to refer to as “separate among equal parts.” Following two consecutive harvests of near perfect conditions, we were once again provided with superlative results that showcase savory and distinctive flavors reminiscent of this singular province.
