Deeply colored, concentrated, and rich in tannins. Never mind that it is still youthful, but it is quite amazing for a Palmer to have this power build. Still, there is the refined quality that is a trademark of this wine. The finish is beautiful.

"Deep color. Slowly building nose becomes more generous and powerful with aeration. The 1999 Palmer yields scents of blueberry, sweet spices, smoke, leather, and forest floor. As a total package, it's a sensational bouquet. Rich and mouth-filling, with elegance, opulence, and impressive structure. While still having tannin to shed, the 1999 is fruit forward in a lavish way. Very long and spicy finish. This particular bottle would have benefitted from many more years in the cellar. Great showing!" 96+/100 Executive Wine Seminar, erobertparker.com

"A brilliant success, Palmer's 1999 is even better than their 1998 or 2000... it boasts an opaque blue/purple color as well as sweet aromas of licorice, jammy cassis, smoke, lead pencil, and minerals. Surprisingly tannic for the vintage, this muscular, gorgeously proportioned, classic effort should be one of the wines of the vintage, at least in the Medoc. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2015." 95/100 Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate

"On the palate there is plenty of very lovely fruit. Very good grip and intensity. Real Palmer elegance. Long and refined. By no means a blockbuster but a wine of fine quality. From 2005." Clive Coates, The Vine
