Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Palafreno (Merlot) is another delicate red. It is an attractive, mid-weight wine layered with sweet dark cherries, flowers, mint and minerals. There is plenty of freshness in the glass, but not quite the richness of the finest years. The French oak needs time to integrate, but may never fully disappear given the wine's modest depth. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
