2014 Palmaris Outer Coastal Plain Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

The 4th generation Palmaris reserves are presented under the name Palmaris, meaning ‘prize-worthy’ in Latin. Palmaris is a name we reserve for wines of substantive character and distinction made only in superior vintages. 2014 was a fine growing season in the Outer Coastal Plain, characterized by rainfall and temperature conditions which allowed for maximum fruit maturity by late season.

The three grapes in the blend are, 80% Cabernet Sauvignon (harvested at 22 brix, t/a 7.5 g/l as tartaric), 15% Petit Verdot (harvested at 22.2 brix, t/a 7.2 g/l as tartaric) and 5% Cabernet Franc (harvested at 19.6 brix, t/a 7.6 g/l as tartaric). The musts were fermented in contact with the skins for a period of 14 days and were vinified using Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast originally isolated from France's Languedoc terroir. They were made in separate lots between September 23 and October 8, 2014 and subsequently transferred to a combination of French Nevers and American oak in January 2015. Malolactic fermentation was effectuated in oak where the wine evolved for 30 months until July 2017. The wines were blended and bottled in August 2017.

The Palmaris 2014 OCP Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red that needs aeration to develop its full flavor, so please decant prior to serving. We hope that you will enjoy this fine wine with a fine meal while in the company of good friends.

Palmaris 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

The 2010 Outer Coastal Plain growing season was perfect with a very long hot dry summer, excellent ripening and amazing resulting wine quality. We believe that this vintage is even better than the 2007 release which finished in a statistical dead heat with the 2004 Mouton Rothschild, Haut Brion and Montrose at the Judgment in Princeton. This may well be the vintage of the century! This Reserve release is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. This is a stunner with balanced fruit, mid-mouth structure and lingering tannin. The wine was bottled on January 10, 2013. Production is limited.
