It is dense of course but this density is balanced with great elegance blackberry fruits sweetness and final juicy acidity. The wine is structured a powerhouse of concentration while preserving this complete style.

This has such class and power. Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of violets. Full-bodied with polished tannins and a juicy finish. Solid and extremely pretty. Fabulous finish. Try in 2020.

One of the all-time great Palmers (along with the 1961 1966 1970 1989 2000 and 2005) the 2009 Palmer is a blend of 52% Merlot 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and a whopping 7% Petit Verdot that came in at close to 14% natural... One of the all-time great Palmers (along with the 1961 1966 1970 1989 2000 and 2005) the 2009 Palmer is a blend of 52% Merlot 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and a whopping 7% Petit Verdot that came in at close to 14% natural alcohol. An opaque blue/black color suggests a wine with thrilling levels of concentration and intensity and that-s exactly what a taster gets. Subtle smoke incense and Asian spice (soy?) notes interwoven with graphite blueberry blackberry and cassis characteristics lead to a full-bodied phenomenally concentrated viscous opulent wine with plenty of sweet tannin. This sensational Palmer reveals even more floral notes than vintages such as 2005 and 2000. It should drink well for 50 years.

Deep red color throughout with a bright red rim. The nose is again beautifully perfumed with generous ripe red fruits including logan berry red currant and ripe raspberry. On the palate it is silky yet hugely structured. It shows great depth exceptional elegance velvety tannins and a great deal of freshness for how concentrated it is. This IS Palmer.

This is on another level from most in the appellation with gorgeous layers of warm currant confiture smoldering tobacco licorice snap warm paving stone and anise all framed by tarry but integrated grip. Stays sleek and well-defined through the finish. Should age beautifully. Best from 2015 through 2030. Tasted twice with consistent notes. -JM

Wonderfully silky and intense with terrific complexity to its dark berry floral and minerals flavors. Most impressive today on the building vibrant finish which boasts a solid structure for at least mid-term aging. With 72 hours in the recorked bottle this wine showed a texture of liquid velvet with its seductive raspberry and chocolate flavors kept fresh by sound acidity. A beauty.

Very dark purple indeed; the colour really lines the glass. Very luscious indeed. Dense and complete. Rich and yet with a kick of acidity and tannin on the finish. Beautifully made. Both long and broad. Should make great... Very dark purple indeed; the colour really lines the glass. Very luscious indeed. Dense and complete.
