    Winemaker's Notes:

    Purple-ruby color of very high intensity. Expressive nose of very ripe dark berries, bracken, cinnamon, wood, peony, violet, smoke, and fresh mint. Perfectly ripe fruitiness, full, tender tannins and lots of freshness in the mouth. Elegance is the prevailing note here with an ideal expression of the terroir. The finish is already long and gorgeous.

    Perfect balance is in view but still requires a little time to emerge and to let the pure drinking pleasure take hold. Peak: 2010-2025

    Blend: 47% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fairly deep color. Gorgeous smoky, floral nose is flamboyant and seductive. It’s bright, intense, with rich cherry fruit, mint, and tobacco. The wonderful fruit character on the nose returns in the mouth; it’s soft and velvety, drinking beautifully right now! The 2004 is not one of the more complex Palmers, more floral and delicate than powerful, but everyone loved it. The terrific performance of the 2004 was easily the biggest surprise of the entire tasting.

    The Wine Advocate

    This wine hits the opulent end of the spectrum, with its dense, velvet structure, and superrich fruit. But it is not weighed down with this richness, because the pure fruit, the fine lines of the tannins and the very precise character of the vanilla from the wood all give liveliness.

    Deep red. Rich aromas of plum, redcurrant, chocolate and smoke. Sweet, lush and smooth, with a wonderfully fine-grained texture for the year. Highly expressive flavors of currant, cedar, chocolate and tobacco. The wine's subtle sweetness, suave tannins and sneaky persistence convey an impression of very regular ripeness.

    International Wine Cellar

    Aromas of licorice, tar and mineral follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a medium finish. A very pretty wine already. Falls a little short, but still outstanding. Best after 2009. 6,000 cases made.
