Overall, I very much liked the nose of this wine, which seemed at first to show just a hint of roasted bell pepper. The April frosts of this vintage challenged many vintners but, as Duroux explained, Palmer's terroir handled that challenge very well. Small quantities of wine, but very good. It seemed to improve in the glass and displayed a real smoothness on the palate. Surprisingly good. Three stars going on four.
Palmer's 1991 is a noteworthy effort. The deep ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of ripe black fruits and new oak. There is excellent definition, a sweet, creamy, medium to full-bodied texture, noticeable fatness, and a lush, concentrated, rich finish. (RP)
This estate is always very good in a mediocre vintage. Lovely character of vanilla, cherry and berry, firm tannins and a long, silky finish. (JS)
