Ch. Palmer (0.75 L)
WA: The nose is evolved yet still provides a fruity core of warm cherries backed up by game, tobacco leaf and a subtle earthy / mushroom character. The palate has a wonderful old-school structure with a medium+ level of slightly chewy tannins and a crisp backbone of acid. Long layered finish of savoury and mineral flavours. Drink now. Tasted January 2009.
