Lapostolle 2011 Clos Apalta Red (Colchagua Valley)

#76 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2015
Return to List

Cool aromas of cola, coffee, blackberry, stewed plum, herbs and minerals make for a highly attractive and complex bouquet. In the mouth, wall-to-wall power and tannins suggest that this needs a few more years to mellow out. Flavors of stewed plum, blackberry, Carolina barbecue sauce and a hint of citrus peel are complex and set up a deep finish with dark flavors and intensity to spare. Drink from 2016 through 2025. The blend is 57% Carmenère, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot. Michael Schachner
