Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta Slightly Depressed Cork 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Intense and dark, inky purple with deep purple shades. Nose: Powerful, rich aromas of jammy red and black fruits and berries. Meaty qualities of bacon fat balanced against spice & floral qualities towards the end with framing notes of nutmeg and vanilla from the well integrated oak. Overall, very complex and attractive. Palate: Concentrated & very well balanced with soft, velvety tannins lingering in the mouth. Very rich mid palate and a long finish. Goes very well with rich red meat such as lamb, beef and wild boar.

Lapostolle:
Lapostolle was founded by the legendary family behind Grand Marnier. Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle brought French winemaking practices to Chile, where she was a pioneer in leading the development of fine quality wines. The winery uses organic and biodynamic practices, and the wines are consistently rated 90+ points. Most recently, Wine Enthusiast named Lapostolle “New World Winery of the Year” in 2008.

The proprietary 2004 Borobo takes its name from the fact that is a blend of Bordeaux, Rhone, and Burgundy grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Syrah, Merlot, and Pinot Noir) in homage to the proprietor's homeland. The fruit is from the Rapel Valley (65%) and the Casablanca Valley (35%). This dark ruby wine offers complex aromas of cassis, pepper, spice box, vanilla, Provencal herbs, lavender, and black currant. It forms a youthful impression on the palate with ripe, plum-like flavors, light tannin, excellent depth and concentration in a full-bodied package. It should evolve for 3-4 years and drink well through 2027. Should you see the 2003 or 2002 Borobo lingering on shelves, do not hesitate because they are nearly as good as the 2004. ** Only 2 in Stock **
