PALMINA NEBBIOLO SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 2009
NVWE Notes: This clearly youthful yet notably deep Nebbiolo is rich, attractively spicy and varietally perfect in aroma, as bright scents of Michigan cherry, cherry pit liqueur, Umeboshi plum, Panetone fruits, star anise, mace, sandalwood, vanilla toffee, tamarind paste and bay leaf find a classy harmony. On the palate, zesty impressions of spiced dark cherries, plums, dried fruits, strawberry cobbler, brioche, mace, sandalwood, tobacco leaf and morel mushroom are all part of a quietly palate-coating streak of flavor. The wines generosity is stiffened however, by a core of polished yet noticeable tannin. The finish is very long and the whole package, if a bit youthfully un-evolved, is dinner-friendly. This distinctive beauty will get ever better over the next five years and beyond. 698 cases made.
