External Reviews for Casa Lapostolle Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Apalta Cuvee Alex
Dense and solid, this is top-flight Chilean Merlot without any hints of green to drag it down. The nose deals polished oak and bright berry aromas; the palate offers a peerfect feel and impressive plum,berry,chocolate and vanilla flavors. Properly tannic and balanced.
The winery is 100% gravity-fed spanning six levels. This rare vertical design allows the wine to flow naturally downward during every stage of the production, avoiding the need to pump, which can adversely affect the subtle flavours of the wine.
Chunky Cab, with dark raspberry and blackberry fruit pushed by firm cocoa and toast notes. More dark, bacony toast on the finish. Solid, if a bit square in the end.
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast 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."
Color: Intense purple color. Nose: Expressive nose full of fresh red fruit aromas such as plum and cherries. Palate: Fresh attack and a medium body. Finishing with very juicy tannins. Service and Food Pairing: Serve at 16°C (60°F). The ideal companion for pastas with red sauces, marinated pork and grilled red meat well seasoned.
