Mother Mary of God! Just give me the bottle and a crazy straw. I want all my wine to taste this way. The nose is; ruby and velvety elegance. Creamy, candied, ripe; dark currants, blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, black plum & poached strawberries. Red licorice, candied, bright, florals for days. Dry crushed rocks, limestone, light, round granite, black licorice, sweet tarriness, expresso roast, dry leather, cedar, dry stems, vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel, cinnamon, light clove & nutmeg, beautiful, soft, herbaceous notes with crazy beautiful fields of; red, purple and blue flowers. The body is full, round and the definition of elegance. The dark, tarry tannins are well rounded and have baby teeth. The structure, tension, length and balance are perfectly knitted together. Magnificent! Creamy, candied, ripe; dark currants, blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, black plum & poached strawberries. Red licorice, candied, bright, florals for days. Dry crushed rocks, limestone, light, round granite, black licorice, sweet tarriness, expresso roast, dark, intense, spice with palate heat, dry leather, cedar, dry stems, vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel, cinnamon, light clove & nutmeg, saline, dry tobacco with ash, beautiful, soft, herbaceous notes with crazy fields of; red, purple and blue flowers. The acidity is round-elegant and like a warm shower. The finish is simply a forget about it experience. It is gorgeous & sexy and a wine I will never forget. This is a 100 point wine in short order. Don’t be foolish enough to open a bottle now unless you have at least 3-5 more. You’ll be robbing yourself of heaven. Photos of; Chateau Palmer, their barrel room, a photo of their vineyard soil structure-if you didn’t know where all that earthiness comes from, a picture is worth a thousand words and their tasting room.

Palmer always makes me weak in the knees even if I am not a Bordeaux guy. 09 is showing surprisingly well

This ‘09 was way better than the Pichon Lalande. Classic Bordeaux nose. Hugely concentrated. Lead, minerality, black fruit and some currant. Incredibly smooth. Great balance.

(16.5/20) Немного закрытое вино, в аромате черные ягоды с нотами корня солодки и молочных сливок. Высокая кислотность и зрелые танины дают ощущение сочности во вкусе, однако хотелось бы большей насыщенности во вкусе. Послевкусие не очень продолжительное. Возможно, вино находится в "закрытой" фазе, пока не впечатляет. #decanterfwe

Young and primary, not incredibly complex right now, but wow is this packed with fruit and built for a long life. Going to be pretty special in 20 years.
