This wine goes from strength to strength, and is certainly a candidate for "wine of the vintage." It has surpassed even Chateau Margaux in recent tastings. The color is an opaque plum/purple. The wine has a fabulously complex nose of smoked duck, white flowers, cedar, Asian spice, creme de cassis, melted licorice, and espresso. Super-concentrated, very powerful, full-bodied, and huge, this is undeniably, one of the biggest, most concentrated, and powerful Palmers made in the last 40 years... Potentially this wine remains the most extraordinary Palmer after the 1961... Robert Parker
