    January 28, 2019 - Nose: Nice plum, boysenberry, violet and cedar nose that is classic palmer. Unmistakable really. Palate: Thinner than the top vintages, but all of the nice dark fruited notes, precise acidity and nuance of leather, herbs, cedar and violet. Finish: Falls short on lenght, but surely a great effort.

    For the vintage this is a really nice wine. As with all things Palmer prices are on the rise, so not sure I would pay current market prices. However, where I found it a few years ago it was a good buy

    January 28, 2019 - With an hour of air, this develops into a full-ish, slightly lush, plummy, cedar, violet-tinged Palmer. For the year, what else can you call this but a success?

    December 15, 2018 - From a while back: raspberry, cherry, mulberry, soice, perfume, earth and tar. Quite tasty. So sad this is our last bottle. Drink now - or hold longer. Great at 20-21 years of age.

    March 6, 2017 - Much like 3 years ago (Papies 92) this wine wine outperforms the vintage. Surprisingly ripe, good ripeness, no green feel, alive, firm and solid on the mid palate. Definitely shows signs of evolution too and had an underlying herby feeling, Very solid wine and worthy if sourced at good prices. 92-93
