This blend included a percentage of syrah, which in those days was termed a “Hermitaged” example from the property. I am not sure if this wine will be made commercially available, or if it was simply done for the edification of the staff at Palmer. In any event, the 2004 Traditional Blend nicely shows its syrah component on both the nose and palate, as the wine offers up a very interesting mélange of cassis, black pepper, tobacco, chocolate, floral tones that are at once the violets of Margaux and the slightly deeper pitched violets of syrah and a fair bit of new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and chewy, with fine mid-palate depth and notable complexity on its long, new oaky finish. The tannins here are nicely integrated into the base of the wine, though some still hail from the wood. (Drink between 2010-2030)
