1995 Ch. Palmer

A deep purple coloured wine with paler rim and legs. On nose it gives blackcurrant, fig, black cherry, violet, licorice, cedar, with trace of smoke and earth. Dry, medium alcohol and acidity. The palate is so enjoyable that layers of flavours of black fruit, licorice-type spice, bell pepper, cedar, and earth. Well integrated with silky tannin. Long length with berry finish. This is a good example for a wine that shows both power and elegance. (95)
