2003 Palmina Nebbiolo Sisquoc Vineyard

The nose shows darker, bluer fruits and chalky tannins.  The wine has a deep palate showing firm oak and bright acidity.  It is a true to form Nebbiolo and displays some violet characteristics that are laced through a massive palate that brings up some nice savory and herbal character after the wine has had a little time to breathe.

Palmina has done a very good job of producing an Italian varietal in a classic style.  The vineyard site is somewhat cooler than most (by California standards) and you can tell the resulting wine was not cooked on the vine, but had time to evolve and develop into what is a significant and young wine - 7 years into its life.
