Silver Palm has an interesting by line. What started out as restaurant exclusive, gained much popularity and is now available for individual purchase. This is a great price as well. I opened a bottle for my dad, who compares all cabs to J. Lohr. He was impressed. The wine is dark ruby in color, serious legs, and firm tannis. The taste is cherry tart, mint leaf and full oak flavor. Its more like a Bordeaux than a true North Coast red wine. Its a versatile dinner wine, try it with roast pork with sauerkraut and potatoes or a sirloin burger with pepper jack cheese and bacon.
