The 2010 "Palermo" from Orin Swift is composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc, blended from the lots leftover after the Mercury Head and Papillon cuvees have been determined. From all hillside Napa Valley vineyards, this intensely concentrated wine was aged for sixteen months in 30% new French oak to promote complexity and integration. It is dense, full and round, with ripe blackcurrant and cassis aromas and flavors, accented by toasty spice. Decant to enjoy young with a hearty steak or lay away for further development in bottle. Winemaker's notes: "Aromas of dark, brooding fruit with subtle French oak in the background lead into a smooth entry of ripe cherry and fig. The mid-palate is subtle and stretches with loads of bright acidity and candied cassis. Layers of stone fruit and ribena lead into a round, supple, lingering finish of integrated soft tannins that roll on and on. This wine is amazing now and has another 8 to 10 years in it at least!"
