Handsome toasted-oak aromas and flavors add a little swagger to this richly fruity yet tannic and full-bodied wine. It is extremely dark in color, and saturated with ripe blackberry flavors that linger nicely on the finish.
2013 SILVER PALM Cabernet Sauvignon Okay. So. Had brought some Apothic (Red) to a party; and a guest said; oh you might like this and generously poured me a glass. I sniffed the bouquet for a full minute if not more. Sniffing the bouquet is not just an important step/ritual; but a vital moment in knowing the effect & potential of the wine. The bouquet of 2013 SILVER PALM Cabernet Sauvignon is magical. I know right? But what it does is it envelops; it goes further than just your sense of smell. You breathe it in and it goes …farther. It permeates. In a good way. It is an intoxicating smell…not to be sarcastic… The smell is bigger than the wine; it seems… It has a full mouth body feel; it is rich and true. It goes down smooth…so smooth for a cab. Some folks have trouble with a cab; this one has a feel that is rich and yet goes down smooth/light. Still has full richness you want from a CAB; but can go down easy. There’s a lightness at first; a nice lightness & yet it’s still a cab; it’s lovely. GREAT with drunken goat cheese from Whole Foods #HHWineReviews #HH ❦❥❧ p.s. With it I rec’d the healthy chocolate choice; whole foods lily chocolate ; no added sugar; lots of cacao and stevia ☼❂☆ ❦❥❧ ♥ ☺“Nothing is impossible to a willing heart.” - John Heywood, English author (16th century)
