International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($290-$350) 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.

More of everything than in 2000. But balance more important than numbers. 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot.Deep black cherry colour, sweet smoky cassis nose and a touch of mint. Not open yet. Lots of sweet spice but not especially oaky until you get to the palate, where it is more marked. Rich and dense and firm with a strong grip but fully ripe in every way. Muscular but smooth, rippling muscles under smooth skin. Dark and concentrated on the palate. Chocolate texture and milk chocolate sweetness but somehow not sweet. Roasted aromas. and a fine fresh long finish. Marked finesse and length and aromatic on the mid palate.  (JH)
