Tasting Notes

"The 2014 Alter Ego de Palmer has quite a feisty, vivacious bouquet with red cherries, crushed strawberry and peppermint scents bounding from the glass. There is just a little warmth here that detracts from its delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, crisp and taut with good acidity, spicy with clove and white pepper, leading to a cohesive and quite persistent finish. There is good potential in this Margaux but it will need time. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting." - Neal Martin, vinous.com, (March, 2018), Rating: 91, Drink: 2020-2040

"The Alter Ego de Palmer 2014 is a blend of 52% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot. It has an opulent, glossy bouquet with layers of small dark cherries and plenty of glycerin. The palate is more reserved than the bouquet suggests: saturated tannins, a little chewiness on the entry but suppler towards the finish. It feels very linear in keeping with the style of the vintage, the finish a little sweet than its peers with a dab of licorice on the aftertaste." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/29/2015, Issue 218),Ratings: 90-92, Drink: 2019-2035
