97+ points Parker - limited Scott Palazzo makes only 400 cases of his Cabernet Franc - originally commissioned by the French Laundry for their list, now available here! 97+ Points Robert Parker: "Another of the profound Cabernet Francs from Scott Palazzo, and to me, one of the two best he has made to date (the other being the 2007) is the 2013 Cabernet Franc. When I tasted it, it had only been in bottle about five weeks, but it was locked and loaded. Dense purple, with notes of forest floor, incense, violets, black cherries and black raspberries, some foresty notes are also present. The wine is full-bodied, opulent, with great acidity, vigor and delineation. This is a sensational example of Cabernet Franc and certainly one of the finest 100% Cabernet Franc cuvées money can buy from California. Drink it over the next 15-20 years... ...Scott Palazzo has a fascinating background, traveling the world, picking fruit in Bordeaux in the late 1970s and early 1980s, becoming highly involved in the music business producing videos that earned him several Grammy nominations. Yet he gave it all up for the lifestyle and challenge of producing world-class wine in Napa Valley. He produces three cuvées of wine, all well-known among wine insiders, but probably not getting the notice among consumers that they merit."
