Lot #5. Palmer 1982

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 93 ST.
"Full, deep red. Spicy aromas of cassis and rose petal, with a whiff of meat. Then wonderfully penetrating and classy, with bright acidity giving the wine superb clarity and thrust. This has terrific structure. Finishes very long and fine, with excellent grip. By far the finest bottle I've tasted to date of this wine, and one of the real surprises of the tasting. (My second bottle showed roasted redcurrant, leather, meat and smoky oak on the nose; and a sweet, suave, broad palate without quite the structure and grip of the first sample. But this wine, too, offered compelling sweetness . . .)" Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 2002

Notes: 1 very top shoulder, 1 base neck, 2 lightly scuffed, 1 lightly corroded capsules, heavily scuffed, 1 torn, 1 nicked, damp stained labels.
