Palmeri's Dark & Brooding Red Wine

Sunset names Palmeri as one of
"Top Wines Worth Their Price"

Sunset, October, 2014

Named one of the top 12 wines worth the price, Palmeri's Van Ness Syrah was described by Sunset International Wine Competetion judges as having "Lovely richness and power. Attractive aromas of blackberry and plum lead to an entry of sweet, dark fruit and hints of tar and spice."

"Palmeri has a good history with Syrah, and this 2011 is right up there. With rich, complex blackberry and blueberry jam, cassis, salted grilled beef, black pepper and smoky oak flavors, it is sophisticated enough to drink with upscale fare. It should age well through 2020"

"Dark in color and deeply flavored, as the name suggests, this blend has evocative blackberry, currant, grilled meat, black pepper and oak flavors."

Connoisseurs' Guide to CA Wine
90PTS – 2011 Dark & Brooding
"...pepper and woodsy spice sit to the rear of well-defined, blackberry fruit first in the nose and then again in the flavors of this ripe and nicely filled wine. Balanced and well-sustained on the palate."

Connoisseurs' Guide to CA Wine
89PTS – 2011 Van Ness Syrah
"...more savory than sweet in its array of meaty spice and ripe berries, Palmeri’s High Elevation Syrah is another solid success in 2011 and hits all of the varietal marks."
