Scott Palazzo has been making wines that fit into the ‘cult category’ in Napa Valley for over a decade now, including the latest release of his Bordeaux-inspired Left Bank Master Blend Red.”
93 Points Robert Parker: "The Palazzo Cabernet Sauvignon Left Bank Master Blend is blended of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it features intense notions of wild blueberries, raspberry preserves, cassis and cherry cordial with touches of molten chocolate, menthol, licorice and cedar chest. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers loads of black and red fruit layers in the mouth with great freshness and a soft, rounded texture, finishing long."
92 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The Palazzo 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Left Bank Master Blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc. It has plenty of blue fruits as well as notes of new leather, graphite, licorice, and hints of chocolate. These carry to a medium to full-bodied wine that has the vintage's straight, focused style, good tannins, and rock-solid overall balance and purity. It's an outstanding 2017 that will benefit from a year or two of bottle age."
