Fruit: black cherry, spice, oak
Food Pairings: nothing and everything
To find a Californian Cabernet that is this soft, lush, velvety at $100 is pretty easy, but at $17 is almost unheard of. When we tasted this in the store we were stunned and think you will be too.
Silver Palm is a new venture launched by the Jackson Family Wine group (started by Jess Jackson) that owns some super notable labels: Copain, Freemark Abby, La Jota, Arrowwood, Siduri to name but a few. They work closely with their winemakers and source from highly cared for vineyards. The Silver Palm label pulls fruit from the North Coast: Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino. If you like Californian Cabernet this one is really hard to beat.
