James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, July 2013
What a second wine. This is so delicious with a dense palate and beautiful yet friendly structure. Velvety tannins coat your mouth but it is the savory fruit that brings you back for more. Love the chocolate and coffee... What a second wine. This is so delicious with a dense palate and beautiful yet friendly structure. Velvety tannins coat your mouth but it is the savory fruit that brings you back for more. Love the chocolate and coffee undertones. Better in 2016 but beautiful now.

A second wine that has improved dramatically is the Alter Ego de Palmer. The 2009 a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot exhibits aromas of blackberries cassis chocolate roasted espresso and a smoky/foresty note. This hedonistic juicy succulent Margaux is meant to be consumed in its first 10-15 years of life.

Very dark blackish purple. Racy start and then quite concentrated with a dry but not drying finish. Decent wine. Opulent and mellifluous. 17/20

Well-sculpted, with enough concentration to the dark plum, maduro tobacco, anise and warm tar notes to merit some cellaring, but enough bright acidity and juicy briar hints to make this accessible now.

Perfumed on the nose with delicious ripe red fruits that seem to easily lift from the glass. The tannins are fully mature and well integrated. This wine is ripe and fruit laden but also has all the stuffing that one would expect from the `Grand Vin'. Fresh and vibrant throughout with flavors of red cherry and espresso. Delightful wine.
