Wine Critic Reviews:

Big and powerful, with loads of fruit and chewy tannins. Still just a baby. Full-bodied, with lots of structure and a long, long finish...

Wine Spectator

Sokolin 1995 Palmer Tasting Notes:

Now there's a bottle size that certainly fits the status of this Tuscan titan! If your wine preference hovers closer to Italy than France, or if you simply wish to expand your collection, this Ornellaia is a total shoo-in. A striking, saturated purple-ruby color hints at the fruity intensity contained within the elixir.

On the nose, a fragrant, almost flamboyant bouquet of black cherry liqueur, roasted coffee, creme de cassis, and sharp spices captures your attention, building just the right amount of anticipation before your lips touch the wine. On the palate, the richness of this full-bodied wine is brought to the forefront, along with very smoothly integrated tannins and earthy wood traces. The acidity cuts through perfectly, creating a balanced, well-rounded drinking experience.

The finish is long and mouth-watering, so don't be surprised when your friends start asking for seconds! Embrace a touch of Italian food culture with this Tuscan masterpiece.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Palmer: With a history as rich as the seductive flavors of their wines, Chateau Palmer is an amazing winery in the sub-region of Margaux. If you're looking to explore otherworldly cultural landscapes and satisfy your craving for some of Bordeaux's finest reds, Chateau Palmer is a great place to start looking for clues. Their wines are as approachable as they are awe-inspiring. The first thing most connoisseurs notice about Chateau Palmer's wines is the almost impossible level of freshness the fruit boasts. It's like plucking a perfectly ripe, delicious grape and eating it on the spot, and the richness and depth of these flavor profiles will keep you coming back for more every single time. The wines tease your heart like a playful lover, and their textures are as smooth as the finest silk.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
