Napa Valley ‘Right Bank’ Bordeaux Style Wines

92 Points – Robert Parker / Wine Advocate

“The 2012 Cuvée Blanc is a blend of 95% Semillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc. Showing hints of fig, tangerine oil, lemon zest and again caramelized grapefruit and other assorted citrus, this is a beautifully aromatic wine with medium to full-bodied flavors. It is dry, lusty, and probably an ideal accompaniment to intensely flavored fish and poultry dishes, given its intensity. Drink it over the next 4-6 years.”

-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!

The new vintage of PALAZZO 2012 Cuvee Blanc is once again inspired by the great Bordeaux Blancs of France . and is a 'beautifully balanced & elegant' food wine, made predominately from the wonderfully exotic & aromatic Semillon grape, with just a touch of Sauvignon Blanc blended in for 'finesse & structure'. The nose is 'floral & seductive' with intense tropical aromas of guava & passion fruit, hints of pear & pink grapefruit, with a touch of spearmint laced throughout. On the palate the wine is 'rich & opulent', with a broad oil texture & weight, that gives way to bright, zesty acidity, giving the wine a 'beautifully balance mouth-feel'! The finish is 'rich & weighty', complex and wonderfully long . especially for a white wine! A 'Superior Food Wine' to be enjoyed!

Hi from the Napa Valley - First of all, a big thank you to everyone for your continued excitement and support for our wines! We are fortunate and very thankful that so many people have appreciated & enjoyed the 'style' of our wines, and what we're trying to create here in the Napa Valley! And in the process, have helped make Palazzo Wines such a tremendous success across the country & around the world!

I am very excited to be releasing the new vintage of my PALAZZO 2012 Cuvee Blanc! After just only two vintages, I and proud to say that several of the Top Sommeliers and Chefs across the country are working with & offering the wine on their wine lists! I can't tell you how rewarding it is, to have made a white wine that first and foremost "I wanted to drink" . and then to have so many of the Top Somms & Chefs also love it . it's been very gratifying to say the least!

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!

À votre santé ... Scott Palazzo
