"White Wine Chardonnay by Casa Lapostolle from Chile, South America. Attractive, luminous, intense yellow color. Very aromatic and complex nose, with lots of fresh and fruity tropical aromas, pineapple, peach and asparagus notes predominate with very well-integrated oaky nuances. Fresh, rich and complex wine on the... "

Tiefe, intensive purpurrote Farbe. Eine komplexe, verführerische Nase von roten Früchten, Brombeeren, reifen Kirschen und Himbeeren, gemischt mit einem Hauch toastiger Noten von Vanille, dunkler Schokolade und Kaffee.

Loads of ripe fruit, with plum, blackberry and boysenberry flavors pumping through, backed by suave, mocha-infused toast, mineral and spice notes. Long, fleshy finish has some serious grip. Carmenêre and Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon.

Estate bottled single vineyard Cabernet from Wine Enthusiast Magazine's 2008 New World Winery of the Year. The Apalta Vineyard is the gem of the estate in Chile's Colchagua Valley, with deeply rooted grapevines up to 60 years old. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot slowly macerated over four weeks then aged 14 months in French oak barrels, 75% new. An Editor's Choice, WE scored it 91 points saying "As always, this wine exhibits power and intensity, with leather, earth and beefy dark fruit making for an alluring bouquet. Round and ripe in the mouth, with big-time cherry and chocolate accents. A wine with true star power, and the lasting notes of smoke and charcoal are the real deal."
