Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta Limited Release Carménère Blend 2012

$124.99

Casa Lapostolle's 'Clos Apalta' is perhaps the finest wine ever to come out of Chile. Truly hand-crafted, Clos Apalta is hand-harvested at night, enhancing the fruit used to make wine, while also reducing energy use at the winery, since there is no need for additional cooling in the cellar. Limited. 93 Points Wine Spectator:  "A dense, ripe and powerful style, with concentrated flavors of dark plum, blackberry and chocolate. Very plush and creamy midpalate, with a rich finish loaded with espresso notes, along with medium-grained tannins. Carmenère, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2020."

Deep ruby / purple. Black fruits and cassis with nice tannic grip. Nice medium-long finish.

Last bottle of what has essentially been my house wine for the last 5 years. Smooth and silky with little tannin. Deep purple fruit and some oak. . It won’t develop. But it need not. A very reliable and easy drinking red for any occasion.

Spicy, plenty of dark berry notes, low tannin. Kind of a lead pencil thing going on. Super interesting
