Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

Delivers a complex mix of zesty, vibrant wild berry, raspberry, currant and blackberry fruit in a firm yet seamless way. Full-bodied and gaining with every sip, this ends with notes of espresso and wild berry.

About This Producer


Paloma Vineyard is located five miles west of St. Helena at the top of Spring Mountain. In the last half of the 19th century it was a vineyard, but was allowed to return to forest at about the turn of the century. Proprietors Barbara and Jim Richards still find old redwood grape stakes and even a few old zinfandel vines that survive under the large Douglas fir trees that surround their home on the property. One vine near the house even produces one or two clusters of grapes a year that are put into the Paloma Merlot blend for good luck.

The purchase of this raw land was the beginning of an odyssey that is ongoing and ever changing, but with one goal - to grow the best grapes possible and to make wines that reflects the terroir of our vineyard.

The elevation of Paloma Vineyard is 2060 feet above sea level at the bottom of the property and 2240 at the top, exposure is generally east with many variations, and the soils are derived from the Sonoma volcanics and from Franciscan sandstone. Total acreage is 20 acres with 15 acres planted.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
