i bought this wine because it was Wine Spectator's number one wine for 2008, and i have to say i was a great wine, *but* not really my style. it was very well-balanced, smooth drinking with substantial fruit, but felt "over the top". it was a little too bold, too concentrated, and the oak was too much for my taste. perhaps i would love it with another 5 years of age.

Fabulous, esp for the price! Interesting, bright fruit nose, followed by a dark, almost malbec-like effect on the palate. I think I would have guessed "Chile" for this, even if I didn't know. A great wine with food. Smooth and delicious.

The wine has a luminous light yellow color that glistens in the glass. There is plenty of tropical fruit, pineapple and peach on the nose with flavors of delightful citrus fruit and white flower and a touch of asparagus. There is some oak but this is not the overwhelming woody California style Chard. It is more French in nature with the fresh flavors that come from the rich terroir of this South American wine. It is full and mouth filling with sensuous acidity and a long finish. I also love the sexy new label.

Tried this once at Mo and Rich's house and don't really remember it standing out...perhaps we drank it too soon because as of last month Mo and Rich both raved about it. Currently have a bottle "aging" and will update this once we drink it. No comment from Pants.

The 2005 Clos Apalta Limited Release is composed of 42% Carmenere, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot. Opaque purple-colored, the nose reveals notes of pain grille, mineral, spice box, and plummy black and blue fruits. This leads to a layered, nearly opulent wine with gobs of savory, spicy black fruits, excellent balance, and superb integration of oak, tannin, and acidity. It will evolve for 4-6 years and be at its best from 2013 to 2025.

A nice forward, juicy style, with pear, fig and toast flavors kept honest by ripe acidity. Drink now. 10,000 cases imported.

In der Nase elegant, reichhaltig und komplex. Der Gaumen ist weich und konzentriert mit einer schönen Frische, gefolgt von einem langen, eleganten Finish.

Tiefrote Farbe mit violetten Nuancen. Intensives Bouquet von roten Früchten, mit frischen Noten von Rosmarin, weissem Pfeffer und süsslicher Würze. Durch die Eiche bestechen feine Vanillearomen mit einem Hauch von Muskat. Am Gaumen angenehm fruchtige und weiche Tannine, gefolgt von frischer Säure und einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.

This elegant Chardonnay is delicately perfumed with hints of white flower and yellow fruit, yet on the palate it becomes assertive, with a round, full mouthfeel and a long, lovely finish.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 91It doesn't take an expert to quickly realize that this is a fine Cabernet. The nose deals potent black cherry and char, while airing unleashes a subtle perfume and floral notes. In the mouth, there's ripe berry flavors and chocolate, while late in the game the tannins stay smooth but tight. A congruent wine with no flaws. Ready now or ageable for a couple of years.Wine Tasting NotesA full-bodied and expressive red, with plenty of berry, red plum and chocolate-spice flavors. There are nice mineral and cedar notes mixed in, with fine tannins on the finish.
