Dark and brooding in the glass, the nose is of dark forest fruit and fresh,crunchy blackcurrants. The impression given is one of extraordinary density, but this is lightened by a sweet, fragrant note. On the palate, the tannins are silky-fine and well integrated with the dense core of rich blackberry, cassis and blueberry fruit. While this is undoubtedly a very big wine, the fragrance continues on to the palate, providing a sweet, violet-edged lift which lends a real sense of poise and elegance. An attractively textured, layered and seductive style, the finish is long, lingering and fresh. Beautiful.
The dense ruby/purple-hued 2006 Palmer reveals sweet aromas of melted licorice, underbrush, toast, plums, and black cherries. Outstanding density, a medium to full-bodied style, and a personality that recalls 1996, this blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot possesses moderately high tannins as well as plenty of aging potential. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028.
