2021 Alter Ego  (Margaux) 91
Flowers and black cherries on the nose open the wine. On the palate, the medium-bodied wine is soft, juicy, fresh, clean and forward, with a polished, spicy, cocoa-dusted currant and plum finish. The wine is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot, making this the highest percentage of Cabernet ever used in any vintage of Alter Ego. Drink from 2023-2038. 89-90

2019 Alter Ego  (Margaux) 94
Flowers and red fruits is the name of the game here. From start to finish, the wine exudes freshness, soft, silky textures and a wealth of earthy, fresh, tobacco tinted, red pit fruits. Forward in style, this will be gorgeous in its youth, but it will age for up to two decades as well! Drink from 2023-2040.

2016 Alter Ego  (Margaux) 93
Semi-quiet at the moment. But with a bit of air and coaxing, you find spice-box, boysenberry, dark chocolate and tobacco notes in the nose. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, refined, elegant, sophisticated and fresh. The finish, with its cocoa-dusted, ripe red fruits is soft and bright. Give this a few more years and it should be an even better wine.

Refined, elegant and floral, the wine is medium-bodied, round, polished and focuses on its core of soft-textured, fresh, ripe red berries. This is ready to drink.
