TASTING NOTES

"Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Palmer has an opulent bouquet for the vintage, something almost Mediterranean tincturing the lifted red berry fruit laced with sage and even a suggestion of oregano. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, a fine bead of acidity, gentle and caressing but with a powerful, almost heady finish. If you are looking for an extravagant wine this vintage, then Palmer is the place to come, though maybe it has just dispensed a little of its luster since I last tasted it. Tasted February 2017." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #231

"Bright ruby-red. Lovely lift to the aromas of raspberry, Asian spices and flowers. Supple and intensely flavored, with an almost pinot-like silkiness of texture to its red fruit and spice flavors. Very graceful, lush wine with real depth and breadth. Finishes subtle, gripping and long." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"An interesting combination of black licorice, light toasty oak and wet earth. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicately fruity finish, along with smoky wood. This has a very silky palate, with a lovely texture. Very polished. Best after 2012. 6,665 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Very deep crimson. Rather more drama and concentration on the nose than Alter Ego has. Reasonably sumptuous. Very sweet, really very obviously low acidity. Not desperately appetising. Pretty round and soft. Very polished. 12.5%. Very unusual mixture of old-fashioned structure (low alcohol) with modern texture and much less acidity than in the old days. Quite distinctive! At Palmer the second wine seemed particularly successful - having the freshness that was not so evident on the grand vin. Compare with the Pavillon Rouge below." JancisRobinson.com
