Alter Ego De Palmer 2000 (RP:87-89)

Medium saturated color. Attractive, expressive, “open for business” nose is rich and jammy with dark berry fruits. There’s plenty of spice, tobacco, and leather in the aromatic mix. The 2000 Alter Ego de Palmer offers a lovely balance of ripe fruit flavors and soft, silky tannins. Very long, consistent finish. Overall, this is a harmonious, delicious wine that’s at peak right now.

Score: 93 E1 Wine Journal Issue Date: 11th May 2011


The Palmer Alter Ego has emerged as one of the finest second wines of the appellation. The 2000 (two-thirds Merlot and one-third Cabernet Sauvignon) is a dense, soft effort with good sweetness, ripeness, and length.
