2010 Lapostolle Carmenere Casa Rapel Valley 14.1% $13

Very precise and focused on the nose with a fine, sweet herbal edge and some cedar oak hightones, framing a core of tomato and currant fruit. Smooth and moderately rich considering its mid-weight size, this covers the palate with chocolate toned plum and red currant fruit. there's a gentle, and slightly creamy, oak note here as this flows to a clean, fresh and moderately long finish with a nice pop of candied berry fruit on the finale. Shows a nice blend of sophistication and purity. 87pts
