Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 91-93/100
The 2021 Alter Ego de Palmer is a somewhat unusual blend, in that it’s fully 60% Cabernet Sauvignon this year, the estate’s Merlot having suffered in the April frosts. Exhibiting aromas of cherries, sweet berries and plums mingled wit hints of spices and pencil shavings, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and polished, with a charming, seamless profile founded on beautifully refined structuring tannins. Tasted twice.
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 92-94/100
Palmer’s 2021 Alter Ego is fabulous. Dense and rich in the glass, with
positively explosive energy, the 2021 dazzles from start to finish. A rush of
dark cherry, plum, spice, blood orange, menthol and licorice infuses the
palate with tremendous intensity. Hints of rose petal and pomegranate
appear later to round things out. The 2021 possesses tremendous textural
richness that is evident from the very first taste. The aromatics alone are
especially present today.
