Bright, saturated ruby to the rim. Penetrating aromas of crystallized black cherry, blackberry, cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice, menthol and spices; faintly port-like but vibrant. Lush but not at all thick or heavy; perfectly integrated acidity re... Stephen Tanzer. A Proprietary Blend wine from in Chile. 1997 Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta 750ml
