Tasting Notes Palmer 2009

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 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.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Palmer '09 has a really vivacious, sumptuous bouquet - superb extraction here. Perhaps it is slightly modern in style with noticeable creamy new oak that needs to be subsumed. The palate is medium-bodied with blackberry, bay leaf, sea salt and tar. The length is impressive, maintaining superb finesse and length. I correctly guessed this as Palmer - sticks out like a sore thumb! Tasted January 2013.
