From an assemblage of 54% Merlot 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Petit Verdot the wine reached 14.5% alcohol. The beautiful deep purple color is almost opaque. Floral aromas are complicated with cassis coffee smoke truffle earth and boysenberry scents which jump from the glass. With intense purity tannins that feel like hand polished silk and a beautiful pure long harmonious rich finish there is not a hard edge to be found. This opulent wine is a treat for the senses.

54% merlot 40% cabernet sauvignon and 6% petit verdot. In terms of technical analysis this is definitely a year of extremes for Palmer and as such this wine will not be for everybody. Aromas of mineral mocha plum boysenberry and pepper lead to truffle and roasted espresso bean. The full bodied palate offers lots of fine grain tannins and good acidity. Gorgeous flavors of mulling spice hoisin and scorched earth complemented by anise and crushed flowers. The finish is very long smooth and


Winemaker's Notes:

Back-to-back very great vintages are hardly a frequent occurrence. In terms of quality, 2010 benefited from exceptionally favourable weather, like the 2009 vintage.
