The 2006 Palmer is 12.9% alcohol and is composed of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44% Merlot. The wine is maturing in half-new oak barrels. The wine's color is nearly opaque black plum with a small purple rim. The aroma is already showing a fine intgration of high quality oak and delicately nuanced red and black fruits. The palate shows superb fruit quality and a textured mouthfeel. Tannins are firm yet fine grained, avoiding the austerity of some '06s. Elegant and refined with excellent quality. Robert Parker 92. Tasted from barrel April '07.
