Tasting Notes Palmer 2005

97

This spectacular offering should continue to improve, and may merit an even higher score after additional aging. Stunningly rich and powerful, the dark purple-tinged 2005 Palmer is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot. Aromas of incense, burning embers, black currants, plums, licorice, and flowers are followed by a full-bodied Margaux with more weight and power even than its nearby first-growth rival, Chateau Margaux. The abundant acidity and tannins are beautifully coated by the wine’s exceptional fruit extract and overall harmony and richness. It is so concentrated that one is hard pressed to find even a hint of new oak. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2045+

Tasted single blind at Southwold. Another extraordinary primal, chocolate tinged nose with ripe black plum, black olive, kirsch and a touch of cooked meat. Very complex and engaging, more expressive than others at the moment. The palate is beautifully defined, ravishing succulent tannins, perfect acidity, really suave and sophisticated. Enormous depth with sleek saturated tannins. Great length with such finesse on the finish. Decadent is an understatement. Raucous! Drink 2018-2040+ Tasted January 2009.

What a nose of milk chocolate, with raspberries and hints of plums and flowers. A wonderful nose. Full-bodied, with super velvety tannins and a chocolate, nut, and dark fruit character on the palate. The fine tannins and great balance make you want to drink this, but you should wait and let it all out. Pull the cork in 2016.
