Dark fruit aromas, blackberry, black cherry, black currants with a touch of spice. On the palate heavy dark fruit, full textured body, some leather and cedar notes, tannic structure well, a little meaty, loads of darkness, hot cocoa, some heat, would be amazing with steak night.

bottle says it can age for 10 years... thats questionable to say the least. This wine isnt bad, dirty nose, bark, stone, plummy. For the $ its a solid pick.

I can't quite remember exactly how this bottle tasted (no, I didn't black out from getting shit-faced) as it was awhile ago and I never reviewed it sooner. Other than the label, the wine doesn't stick out in my memory too much; therefore, I know it was a good bottle of wine but not the best...this review isn't helpful at all.

Good solid Cab. Tight structure, nicely balanced - not too tannic. Cherry/berry fruit with hints of coffee bean/cocoa. Nice clean finish. Let it breath a for a bit. A steal at under 10 bucks.

I picked up this 2007 cabernet based on there great 2004 syrah I had a chance to try and was intrigued by the quality of the cuvee alexander series. The smell is very nice ripe berries with a very creamy oakiness, nice nose. Color i dark deep inky purple. Also get a dark chocolate off the nose but overall you can just tell its a very powerful nose. Taste of cedar, tobacco, and very strong gripping tannins. This is a very nice wine for 17.99 and its a definite recommended wine. I am starting to believe this cuvee alexander level is a stellar buy. Really beautiful wine. Nice big bodied with long finish.

Lapostollersquo;s basic Cab scores big in the fine rsquo;01 vintage. It features a deep nose of tire rubber, blackberry and rusticity. The palate is high-octane and deep, with plenty of ripe, tannic black fruit. And the finish is round and lengthy. It should age well for a couple of years.

Intense and saturated, with dark aromas of pencil lead, tree bark, cola and black fruits. In the mouth, itrsquo;s full-force Cabernet. The blackberry and black cherry flavors are pure and satisfying, while the finish offers smoke, chocolate and coffee. This wine features ripeness and an overall quality rarely achieved by others in the price range.

Bargain hunters should stalk this toasty, firm, well-made Cab because there arenrsquo;t many better in the price range. The palate features pure dark cherry and cassis flavors, while the structure is tight but not hard. Finishes with coffee and sweet, ripe tannins. Drink now and all the way through 2008.

The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon has intense blackberry and cassis liqueur-like aromas. Medium to full-bodied and mouth-staining, this satin-textured wine is crammed with copious quantities of dark fruits. Seamless, with no hard edges, this excellent value is a well-structured, powerfully flavored wine for drinking over the next 6ndash;7 years.

Firm, toasty aromas blend well with cherry and plum notes. The palate is healthy in feel, with good depth and balance. Tastes lightly herbal, but the heavy lifting is handled by black fruit and chocolate flavors. Peppery on the finish and very solid as a whole.

This friendly red offers a nice beam of briar, raspberry and blackberry fruit, wrapped with judicious toast on the finish. Drink now.

Juicy layers of raspberry, vanilla and cassis bush are backed by a bouncy, slightly raisined finish. Also contains Carmenegrave;re, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2009.

Winemaker's Notes:

Casa Lapostolle has been founded by the Marnier Lapostolle family from France and the Rabat family from Chile in 1994, through Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, her husband Cyril de Bournet and Don José Rabat Gorchs. Today, Casa Lapostolle is 100% owned by the Marnier-Lapostolle group. The Marnier Lapostolle family, founders and owners of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier, are known for producing spirits and liqueurs, but the family has been also involved in winemaking for generations. Originally winegrowers in the Loire Valley, the Marnier Lapostolle continue this vintner tradition today as owners of Chateau de Sancerre. The Cuvée Alexandre wines come from the Atalayas Vineyard in Casablanca, which is located on slopes facing different directions. This gives a great complexity once all the different parcels have been assembled into the final blend. This Cabernet Sauvignon offers up intense black fruit aromas, blackcurrant and cassis combined with light touches of cider tobacco and Herbs de Provence. Sweet spices return at the finish to add complexity. Well balanced structure and a long finish.
