Winery Notes: “The 2016 Paloma Cabernet Sauvignon displays a seductive nose of dark cherry, raspberries, anise and a touch of nutmeg. In the mouth, the wine is silky smooth and very lush, soft on the entry and rewarding the taster with an impressively long finish. Surprisingly approachable for a young Cabernet made from Spring Mountain fruit, the 2016 Paloma Cabernet will offer immediate gratification. Enjoy this beauty with a hearty meal of rich, creamy cheeses, wild game and a decadent chocolate dessert.”
Tasting Notes: Paloma is known for its Merlot, so it is rare they offer their Cabernet for sale. The Cabernet is grown to be blended with their Merlot, but in some years (higher yields) they do produce it as a single varietal. So I am happy to share this bounty with you! This wine is bold and complex with intense aromatics jumping out of the glass. The wine is full in body, yet silky and well-polished, dense, yet supple and pleasing. The palate is loaded with gorgeous black currant, chocolate and espresso notes that lead to a long and explosive, yet refined finish. A real gem!
