The Lamborghini Club Stopped By Palaia Vineyards This Spring!
Neil Young (Tribute) 2009
On Saturday, December 11, 2010 Carlo De Vito posted the following article on the Hudson River Valley Wineries blog after his visit to our winery.
"Last night I was at a tasting and the opportunity to try a number of wines. The lighting had some mood to it, so some of my pictures didn't come out as well as I wanted. I'm no Ansel Adams. And I can't stand to lug around my 35 mm digital camera. Ugh!
One of the wines I really liked was this Palaia Cabernet Franc 2006. It's an estate grown Cab Franc. And it's kinda different, which is why I think I liked it so much.
Jan Palaia was there. She's always so nice and accomodating.
It was a very light Cabernet Franc. Possibly one of the lightest Cabernet Francs I've ever had. But the nose was cherries, and vanilla and a whiff of smoke. Nice earthy nose. And the taste was fabulous. Almost like Pinot, with a bright cherry coming through, and a peppery ending.
A very Burgundy slant on Cab Franc. Very nice!"
