Winemaker's Notes

Beautiful deep ruby color. The nose bursts on very ripe red fruits and blackberries before notes of wood, spices, violet, moss and mocha emerge.

The attack is straightforward and delicate, the fruit exquisite and the tannins are very subtle. The wine develops gracefully around a lovely presence that grows smoothly and steadily and finally takes hold before yielding to a very balanced and mellow long finish.

A classic vintage, this harmonious, absolutely delicious Palmer displays breed and supreme elegance. Decant it an hour before serving.

Blend: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"Fairly deep color. Another lovely, elegant Palmer nose. It offers richness, but stays pure and delicate. (There’s almost as much Merlot (44%) in the blend as Cabernet Sauvignon (51%), one reason it’s less powerful than other vintages.) The 2001 offers scents of red fruit, blackberry, sandalwood, spice, and mocha. Follows through in a similar fashion on the palate; same delicacy and precision. It’s subtle yet graceful, nicely balanced, still needing a few more years to reach peak, although it's most of the way there. Overall, a very strong showing."
93 Points

"Dark red. Expressive aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, dark plum, tobacco, graphite, minerals and flowers. Very suave and smooth on entry, then a bit closed in the middle palate. But this very young, firm Palmer boasts harmonious acidity, very good cut and excellent balance. Finishes with rather tight tannins that will need six or seven years to soften."
