TN: Winter Palacios

Palacios 2005 Bierzo “Pétalos” (Northwest Spain) – Very aromatic, but while there are dark flowers, black truffle and purple-black fruit to be ferreted forth, the majority of what’s on display is a flat, varnishy layer of smooth wood that deadens and muffles the wine, bringing its finish to an abrupt, oaky end. Disappointing. (4/07)
