One of the Medocs most successful 1978s this wine has reached full maturity but it reveals no signs of an early demise. The color is a dark ruby/garnet with only slight amber at the edge. The nose offers up black truffle... One of the Medocs most successful 1978s this wine has reached full maturity but it reveals no signs of an early demise. The color is a dark ruby/garnet with only slight amber at the edge. The nose offers up black truffle cassis smoked herbs and meaty aromas. In the mouth there is a green pepper quality to the rich sweet fruit. This medium-bodied silky-textured wine is more spice-driven than most Palmers but attractive and mouthfilling. Anticipated maturity: Now-2006. Last tasted 10/97 - Robert Parker
