For the holidays we had the pleasure of having the 2008 Château Palmer. A Left Bank Bordeaux from Margaux and a blend of of 51% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot. A beautiful bottle of Bordeaux, drinking well right now with many years ahead of it.

On the nose there is black cherry, bkackberry, black currant, licorice, spice, cedar and earth.

On the palate there are notes of black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, mocha, licorice, spice, graphite and earth.

This wine is full bodied with a beautiful smooth supple mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + chewy tannins that leaves you with a long black fruit woodsy finish. What a wonderful bottle a great way to begin the holidays. I hope everyone has had a great holiday. Continued joy and happiness into this coming new year. Please, continued good health and stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Dark and intense plummy fruit. Violets and roses. Gloriously silky with great purity

At age 22, Palmer 2000 is finally in a great spot and unquestionably accessible, really popping after an hour in the decanter. It has an explosive nose showing layers of intense blackberry fruit, mocha, cigar box and a kiss of cedar and soil tones. The palate, while still showing some ripe tannins, is velvety and seductive with tremendous depth, balanced acids and massive length. Many fabulous years ahead for this beauty.

Day 2 of WineBoyz Wineapalooza. Tasted blind. Dark reddish amber color. Translucent with clear rims. Nice weight. Seems really old. Notes of cola, rhubarb, cranberries, cigar box. Guessed Merlot-based Bordeaux from the 20s/30s. This faded as the day went on. We've had better versions of this, but it was still great to check in on it one more time. Especially with other 61s in the lineup.

This wine is refined and polished - a superb effort that is really coming into its own. Still vibrantly Ruby in color, it has a huge bouquet of Violet, mocha, blackberry, blueberry, plum, licorice, cassis, truffle and forest floor. Velvety texture, very polished tannins and the only slight drawback is the finish that only comes in as medium plus. Palmer is now completely biodynamic. Terrific wine

Impressed by the showing for the 03. Expected it to be high octane and lacking finesse. The aroma proved me wrong, as measured herbal notes came through. Attack is certainly ripe but oak seems to meet it quite well.

Surprise for a 80
Off-vintage. Sweet core without being raisin-y! Drink it :)

Showing extremely well right now. Plum and cherry liquor with cacao nibs and cigar box. Savory herbs. Generous, velvety palate with some significant structure still showing. A 3 hour double decant helped.
