Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 97
One of the all-time great Palmers... An opaque blue/black color suggests a wine with thrilling levels of concentration and intensity, and That's exactly what a taster gets.
Wine Spectator (WS): 95-98
Loaded with exotic fruit, with masses of crushed blackberry and blueberry. Superclear and fruit forward. Full and velvety, with fresh acidity and a long, long finish. This is almost in your face, but reserved in a way. Superseductive.
