Had the 2014. Really nice wine. Great fruit and oak. Not as complex as I would have hoped for at this price point.

A very nice cabernet. High alcohol content (15.5%) is the driver behind a fruit forward palate.

Full body, thick texture wine. Very strong but doesn’t taste strong.

Palermo from Orin Swift borrows its label, featuring a mummified Capuchin priest, from one of a series of images taken by National Geographic photographer Vincent J. Musi of 16th century Capuchin Catacombs. Four long limestone corridors underneath the Capuchin Church in Palermo, Sicily hold about 8000 mummies. After looking over the rest of Musi’s series, I’m surprised Dave Phinney didn’t create an entire line of wines using the images from this collection. Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Malbec and Merlot, and all from Napa Valley. Packed with extracted dark fruit, cassis, vanilla, cedar, and chocolate, the Palermo eschews nuance in the name of hedonism.
