Lot #153. Palmer 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97 WA.
"Medium saturated color with the first hint of amber at the rim. Exuberant, generous nose has us riveted in our seats in awe. Scents recall ripe cherries and blackberries, candied citrus fruits (similar to mature Sauternes), violet, coffee, cedar, ginger, and mint. Equally wonderful in the mouth; smooth, mellow, and totally seductive. The 1990 has silky tannins and terrific mouth feel. The finish is extra long, exotic, with oriental spice at the end. In sum, this was the 'wine of the night' – until we came to the 1989." Wine Journal, May 2011
Notes: Slightly recessed, very lightly scuffed capsule, lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $350
