Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 95
Palmer's 1989 is one of the vintage's great successes. The wine exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, a sweet, jammy nose of black fruits, intermingled with floral scents, licorice, and a touch of truffles. Full-bodied and supple, with low acidity, copious quantities of ripe fruit and glycerin, and a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, harmonious, seamless texture, this is a gorgeous Palmer. It may turn out similar to this estate's brilliant 1962 and 1953. Although approachable, it will improve for another decade, and last for 20-25 years.-Robert Parker

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 93
Deep ruby color at the center, with a red edge. Shows lovely floral, berry and plum aromas and hints of earth. Full-bodied and chewy, with masses of tannins and a long, sweet and ripe berry aftertaste. Just peeking through the curtain. Great potential. Muscular-style Palmer.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2000.-JS
