Wine & Spirits(2005 Vintage) This spectacular offering should continue to improve, and may merit an even higher score after additional aging. Stunningly rich and powerful, the dark purple-tinged 2005 Palmer is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot.

It is so concentrated that one is hard pressed to find even a hint of new oak. Anticipated maturity: 2017ndash;2045+.
