Reviews for 2010 Palmer Alter Ego

WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
Velvety and inviting with lovely dark plum and blackberry fruit followed by a long caressing finish. This has some grip too but it's nicely integrated. Should have some staying power. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

Ripe blackcurrants powerful fruit with great acidity and enticing dusty tannins. The wine brings out juicy Merlot flavors with a more concentrated element.

The 2010 Alter Ego is the richest ever made. Relatively high in alcohol this is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Merlot. Thick and juicy its black fruits intermixed with acacia flowers camphor and subtle smoky notes are followed by a plump corpulent style of wine with loads of fruit glycerin and texture. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. -Robert Parker

Floral and blackberry and currant. Full to medium body. Round and velvety with chocolate and nuts. A firm and structured Alter Ego.

Aromas of ripe cherry raspberry jam pepper mocha and vanilla are interwoven with turned earth and wet stone. The palate is medium bodied with vibrant flavors of strawberry licorice and coffee while the mid palate introduces acidity and restrained tannins. A nice creamy finish that ends with a bit of heat. More structure here than previous years and this will be approachable within 5 years of release and drink well for another 10+ years thereafter. Alcohol is highest on record at 14.4%. pH 3.55.
