"A wine that shows excellent structure, with ripe fruit and soft, warm tannins. It has weight while retaining its crisp acidity and intense black-currant flavor. Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"
"Taut but sappy, with lots of white pepper and kirsch flavors and a chalky energy on the tightly wound finish. Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
"Fully saturated purple-ruby. Perfumed, sexy nose of fresh blackcurrant, cinnamon and aromatic herbs. Suave, dense and sweet, with ripe blackberry and cassis flavors complicated by bright minerality. This is the second time petit verdot was used in Alter Ego: director Thomas Duroux told me that because he found it less structured than usual this year but very aromatic, he thought it was ideal for the estate's second wine.Barrel Sample: 88-91 Points"

"This wine shows an inviting fruit with orangey acidity and a crispy finish. Juicy. So attractive already. This has a little more Petit Verdot in the blend. Gives it lively and interesting character. Second wine of Palmer. Barrel Sample: 90-91 Points"
"More approachable (it tips the scales at 13.2% alcohol), the 2011 Alter Ego de Palmer is composed of 48% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and a whopping 15% Petit Verdot. Despite all of the latter varietal, the wine is velvety textured, pure and impressively endowed with a lovely fragrance. It should drink beautifully for 10-15+ years.Barrel Sample: 88-90 Points"
