Palazzo Right Bank Red Napa Valley  2011  - Last Bottle

Palazzo Right Bank Red Napa Valley 2011

BOOM! Wow! We have huge, mad respect for this Napa red at the regular price, but at OVER 50% OFF? C’mon!! This wine gets HUGE press and scores most years (2010 Parker 96+, 2012 Parker 98+!!), so snagging a little of the plush, silky ‘11 is just...dope!! Amazing!! Palazzo can be HARD to find, unless you’re a regular at The French Laundry and dozens of other uber-high-end restaurants...this is simply lush and lovely stuff that is drinking sensationally right now, today, no waiting, no sir! What a price!!! Napa, baby!

“Right Bank” refers to the right bank of Bordeaux (St. Emilion and Pomerol + satellites), as this blend emulates those appellations with higher percentages of Merlot along with the Cabernet and Cab Franc. Scott Palazzo’s wines regularly get big scores as noted above, and with a little age, this one is PERFECT --- deep, opulent, and complex. Man, it’s good to be a local!! How else would we make this stuff happen?

Dope, indeed, with tons of Napa goodness gushing into your brain and mouth --- serious black currant fruit, a twizzler of red fruit, mocha, espresso, pie crust and herbs….tons going on and it’s all wrapped in a velvety texture --- very Napa (you won’t confuse it with Bordeaux, we don’t think) but disarmingly delicious. You saw that price, right?? As you might expect, we got very little, so if Napa Red is your jam, best be on it….while it lasts…!

Our goal at PALAZZO is to make wines of outstanding quality, depth, balance and structure. . . that exhibit both ‘power and elegance’ on the palate. . . and that pair well with a broad range of foods. That will always be the standard! It is my hope, that my wine will bring laughter and enjoyment to people's lives . . . and zest and harmony to everyone's dining tables!

About The Producer

It began almost 30 years ago . . . a love affair with the wines produced from the Bordeaux region of France. Particularly, wines from the small, family owned Chateaus that dot the rolling hillsides of the beautiful ‘Right Bank’ countryside. It is from here, that my inspiration came.

Finally, the chance to fulfill a life-long passion and dream of producing a wine of exceptional character and style, that would capture the ‘power and elegance’ of the wines I tasted and enjoyed as a young man living in France. In November 2005 that dream was realized . . . when I released my first vintage of PALAZZO Napa Valley Red Wine!

Like the great wines from the 'Right Bank' villages of St. Emilion and Pomerol in Bordeaux . . . Merlot makes up the lion share of PALAZZO Napa Valley Red Wine . . . giving the wine its sheer power & strength, silky texture and beautiful layers of rich cherry & black currant fruit. The Cabernet Franc adds a floral spiciness, acidity and brightness to the wine, with the Cabernet Sauvignon adding structure and deep dark fruit to the finish.
