2009 Vintage: A true terroir vintage. What is possible when grapes from an ensemble of plots express themselves fully. Favorable weather left the harvested fruit ripe, healthy, full of flavor and concentrated and indubitably complex.
“Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Palmer delivers a beguiling array of black fruit—warm plums, cassis and black cherry compote—with kirsch and wild sage sparks plus profound suggestions of fragrant earth, black truffles, iron ore and liquid licorice. Full-bodied, rich and decadently seductive in the mouth, the generous fruit is superbly framed with plush tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.”
