Napa Valley ‘Right Bank’ Bordeaux Style Wines

96+ Points Robert Parker / Wine Advocate

“The 2010 Palazzo ‘Right Bank’ Red is another wine of great intensity … sensational in extraction and richness … this blend of 72% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon is the product of a cool year in Napa … It shows fabulous density, richness, and intensity!”

-Robert Parker

“Scott Palazzo has a fascinating background, traveling the world, picking fruit in Bordeaux in the late 1970s and early 1980s, becoming highly involved in the music business producing videos that earned him a Grammy Nomination. Yet he gave it all up for the lifestyle and challenge of producing world-class wine in Napa Valley.  He produces three Cuvées of wine, all well-known among wine insiders, but probably not getting the notice among consumers that they merit!”

96+ Points – Robert Parker / Wine Advocate

Hi from the Napa Valley - I am very excited to be releasing my new vintage of PALAZZO 2010 'Right Bank' Proprietary Red Wine! 

For those of you who don’t know, it all started with this wine!  Before there was a PALAZZO Cabernet Franc made for the French Laundry, or a PALAZZO Cuvee Blanc / White Wine made from crazy “60+ year old” Semillon vines … there was the first vintage of my PALAZZO 2003 ‘Right Bank’ Proprietary Red Wine!  And it was this wine … that caught the attention of the Top Sommeliers & Chefs across the country!

PALAZZO 'Right Bank' Proprietary Red Wine was the wine I first wanted to make.  A wine with exceptional character & beauty!  Floral and intriguing on the nose … complex & rich with delicious layers of red & black fruit on the palate … and balanced throughout with good acidity, minerality & structure!  In essence … A Great Food Wine!

And continuing in that same “style & commitment to quality” it is with excitement and tremendous pride that I release this new vintage of my PALAZZO 2010 ‘Right Bank’ Proprietary Red Wine!  As always, Merlot makes up the lion’s share of the blend … giving the wine its sheer power & strength, silky texture, and beautiful layers of rich cherry & blackberry fruit.  The Cabernet Franc adds brightness, acidity and ‘floral notes’ to the wine.  While the Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure & character … with hints of dark chocolate, earth / minerality, and cocoa & espresso bean to the finish.

As most of you know, my love affair with the wines produced from the Bordeaux region of France began over 30+ years ago.  Particularly, wines from the small, family owned Chateau’s that dot the rolling hillsides of the beautiful  ‘Right Bank’ countryside of St. Emilion & Pomerol.  It is from there that my inspiration and passion for producing PALAZZO WINE continues to come.

Our goal at PALAZZO WINE is, and always will be, to produce beautiful wines of outstanding quality, with distinction and class!  Wines that are both ‘powerful and elegant’ …  and pair well with a broad range of foods … Reminiscent of the style and quality of wines that come from the wonderful ‘Right Bank’ region of Bordeaux, Franc!

~ A votre sante! . . .  Scott Palazzo
