Palo Alto's first high-end wine is a sucsess. A blend of Malbec, Cabernet and Merlot, Benito A shows baked, rustic aromas of sweet fruits and savory spices. The palate is full and flush, while flavors of earthy, baked fruits are woody and saucy, with tobacco, cocoa and raw oak flavors carrying onto the finish. Drink through 2018.
