...classic Margaux. It has delicacy and elegance but it also packs power concentration and dark dry flavors. Intense and concentrated the richness of the high proportion of Merlot in Palmer s blend shows through while the Cabernet Sauvignon gives a fresh lift at the end. Wine Enthusiast.

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: A virile, muscular effort for this estate, the 2001 Palmer (a blend of 51%<br/>Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot) exhibits a saturated<br/>purple color to the rim. Although closed and backward, it is surprisingly<br/>powerful, layered, and formidably endowed, revealing hints of charcoal, black<br/>fruits, earth, and underbrush. There is a lot going on in this offering, but it<br/>needs 5-7 years of cellaring to resolve its high tannin. Anticipated maturity:<br/>2010-2022. <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate)
