The colour has remained a very deep purple. The powerful, complex bouquet combines blackcurrant, plum, ripe raspberry, and tobacco, with a hint of smokiness. Like most vintages of Palmer, this wine has filled out with bottle age. The imposing tannin present at the beginning has entirely softened, integrating beautifully into a rich, full-bodied, and ultra-concentrated flavour profile. This 2000 is tremendously elegant and will improve over many, many years.

Wine Spectator"This takes time to unwind, but then it explodes with fruit and powerful, yet silky tannins. Perfumed and rich, with berry, cherry and tobacco character. Full-bodied, with super-well-integrated tannins and a reduced, refined palate structure. It's compacted and powerful. Very racy wine. Best after 2010."

Wine Advocate"This has turned out to be a prodigious Palmer. The saturated purple color offers up sexy, full-bodied, almost masculine notes of roasted meats, blackberries, and creme de cassis intermixed with notions of toast, smoke, and camphor. Only 50% of the production made it into the 2000, a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Merlot. The wine is opulent, rich, and full-bodied, with tannin that has become sweeter with age. Its best showing yet, most importantly, has been from bottle. This is a great Palmer that should rival the best of recent vintages, which have all been stunning, as this estate continues to go from strength to strength. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030."

Wine EnthusiastAt this stage, this is very closed, very tight, giving little. But it is possible to discern that this is going to be a beautiful wine. There are flavors of sweet raisins and the fruit has a new world richness, but the structure of dry tannins is always present. It looks as though it has a good, long life.
