2001 Palmaz Cabernet


What did you think of this?
It was the last vintage made by Randy Dunn and the style since '01 has been markedly different.
I actually prefer the wines from '02 on and when you go back and taste the '01, it is a completely different wine from current day Palmaz.

Did not think much of it just a solid california cab. My first time trying Palmaz wines so I can't tell if the style has changed.

The owner however is a remarkable scientist, inventor, entrepreneur who is credited with the invention of the stents used to treat aneurysms and other vascular problems including coronary artery disease.

2001 Cape d'Estaing Kangaroo Island Shiraz- a great reminder of why I no longer buy Shiraz and haven't for years.


Just one more sip.

Yeah, I knew that about the owner and my father has one of those stents in his chest!! So, it was pretty cool that we did an event with some people from Palmaz last year. As a result I was able to sample a vertical of pretty much the last decade. There bottlings after '01 are more impressive, IMHO anyway...

This was very enjoyable. Nose of cassis, licorice, anise and dark berries that were consistent with the palette. Tannins felt nicely integrated. I can't see this getting much better with time. I have 2 or 3 bottles left that I plan to drink over the next year or two, no sense in waiting any longer. I popped and poured it and it continued to improve in the glass over the next 3 hours.

I've really enjoyed these wines, although its only been the Le Meal and l'Oree. I'm looking forward to a visit at the winery this summer. I'm hoping to try both the l'ermite bottlings.

How is the 2000 drinking. I picked up a few 2003 Le Meal the other day and thinking about the blanc as well.
