Reviews:

"The 2016 Alter Ego de Palmer is a blend of 40% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot this year (a little less Merlot than usual). That exuberant Merlot drives the aromatics along, almost citrus-like with scents of blood orange and blueberries soaring from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin on the entry, quite sharp acidity at first, quite structured for an Alter Ego with a grippy finish. I think the new oak will bind this together, this sample coming from a used barrel." -Rated 91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"This perfumed wine has a high percentage of ripe Petit Verdot that gives extra structure to the generous fruit core. The acidity is intense, complementing the delicious black-cherry fruitiness. It's an exuberant, but balanced, wine." -Rated 95, Wine Enthusiast

"The 2016 Alter Ego represents a fairly big departure is style from what has been the norm in recent vintages. Bright red stone fruit, tobacco, flowers and herbs. The combination of less Merlot and naturally lower alcohol are among the factors that have contributed to an especially silky, perfumed Alter Ego built on considerable finesse." -Rated 93, Vinous

"This is very concentrated yet soft and fresh in texture. Full-bodied and round and mouth-filling. So impressive how it fills your mouth yet remains fresh. Itís so framed." -Rated 96, James Suckling
