Appealing nose of lightly floral aromas coupled with lemon and lime zest. Light bodied and off dry, the flavors are straightforward with citrus the primary player while light acidity balances the gentle residual sweetness. Sure, the tense interplay of sugar, fruit and acid found in top-flight Riesling just isn't there, but this is a well-made, easy-drinking introduction to the variety.

I tried this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot at the very end of the tasting and although my senses were starting to tire, this wine just floored me with its almost black color and rich, almost port or cognac like notes on the nose. On the palate, it was a monster in such a outstanding way with massive amount of rich fruit and a gripping feel that just coated every part of my mouth with that beautiful fruit along with notes of charred wood and licorice and huge tannins that give it enough backbone to age for 30+ years. Although some experts feel that the anticipated maturity for this wine is 2017, it was approachable and delicious today and I can only imagine what the next few years will hold for those patient enough to hang on to it. 97 points

Good deep red-ruby. Deep, brooding aromas of blackberry, kirsch and chocolate mint, with a distinctly roasted, jammy character showing today. Compellingly sweet and explosive on the palate, with great fat to the flavors of plum, mulberry, coffee and mocha; like a cocktail of jammy fruits. This is downright massive, not to say decadent, for Palmer — at 14% alcohol the highest ever recorded here. A pure liquid confection.

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+.

Opulent and flamboyant are the two words that come to mind with this wine. Aromas of blackberries, dark chocolate and toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with big, chewy tannins (yet they are refined and silky) and a long, long finish... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Chateau Palmer 750ml

Dark in color, with intense aromas of crushed berry, toasty oak and hints of raisin, turning to fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with a big, juicy, velvety texture and a long aftertaste of coffee, coconut and berry. This is powerful and muscular for Palmer. Best after 2012.

Château Palmer is a fabulous example of a Left Bank Bordeaux that is both elegant and modern. The wine is redolent of dark fruits, blackberry, cassis, and plum. Hints of milk chocolate and toasty oak on the palate give way to tannins that are firm and silky. A wine for the ages.
