...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 give... 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)
