For the Budding Sommelier: 2018 Palmaz Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Palmaz is best known for its big steak-worthy reds— and for its high-tech winery innovations. Palmaz Vineyards’ winemaking takes place in a flawlessly engineered maze of tunnels and domes carved into rock at the base of Napa’s Mount George. This Cabernet features aromas of dark fruit like blackberries and huckleberries that jump from the glass. While flavors of currant and cassis on the palate pair harmoniously with the wine’s bright acidity.
