It is how gpg2 (and hence MacGPG2) is designed to work.

To achieve that you want, add the following to the file ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf:

default-cache-ttl 0

Then terminate gpg-agent - either using 'killall gpg-agent" from the
command line and then run start-gpg-agent from Applications.
Alternatively, just restart your machine.
