Tasting Notes and Scores
The 2006 Alter Ego de Palmer, a top-notch second wine, exhibits notes of tar, licorice, herbs, and sweet black cherries in its soft, round, easy to drink style. Enjoy it over the next 5-7 years. Drink 2009-2016.

Tasted blind at Farr Vintners' horizontal tasting, the 2006 Alter Ego de Palmer has evolved a savoury bouquet with earthy, almost Saint Estèphe like aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with tart red cherry fruit, quite spicy yet harmonious with a ferrous, structured, tobacco-stained finish that lingers long in the mouth. After ten years, this seems to be à point, though it has the substance to give another 5-8 years of pleasure. Tasted April 2016. Drink 2017-2028.
