Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta Slightly Depressed Cork 2004
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.

External Reviews for Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta Slightly Depressed Cork
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 **
