Editorial Reviews for Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Syrah
Spicy and herbal at first the nose opens to reveal wonderful notes of soil and dried herbs framing the ripe, dark berry fruit. Restrained in the mouth yet fully ripe with nicely captured fruit that offers compelling depth but a lively natural feel that does not obscure the cool, composed, complex character of the wine. A lovely wine for consumption over the next several years. 2009-2014
Deep color, bold flavors, smokey, very dry.
External Reviews for Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Syrah
This black wine is so ripe it’s syrupy. Dense aromas of blackberry, raisin, cassis liqueur and perfume push the limit, while licorice, prune, raisin, blueberry and chocolate flavors end in a sticky, slow-moving finish with a lot of weight. This tastes every bit like a warm-climate wine.
This rich red is marked by game and spice notes to its ripe plum and crushed black cherry fruit. Mouthfilling, with accents of mesquite, mocha and maduro tobacco. Drink now through 2018.
A solid Syrah that's well put together, with dark loam, currant, tar and cocoa flavors backed by ample structure and flesh. Nice, rich finish. Needs short-term cellaring to stretch out fully. Best from 2007 through 2009. 1,700 cases imported.
Von tief intensivem Dunkelrot in der Farbe, besticht er in der Nase durch eine Explosion von roten Früchtearomen, mit einem rauchigen und würzigen Unterton. Toastige Noten der Eiche ergänzen die Frucht optimal. Im Gaumen wirkt er besonders dicht und ist voll im Körper. Die feinen Tanninen sind abgerundet und verleihen dem Wein einen langen, samtigen Abgang. Ein vollaromatischer Wein mit grosser Persönlichkeit, zum jetzt trinken oder für eine weitere Lagerung über Jahre!
If a blast of thick but classy oak doesn’t bother you, then this single-vineyard wine comes highly recommended. It gets better with every minute of air, and along the way you get aromas of charcoal, mint, licorice and berries, which are followed by flavors of blackberry, prune cake and molasses. This modern, ripe, eminently drinkable Syrah weighs in at 14.5% alcohol.

The 2005 Syrah Los Kuras Vineyard "Cuvee Alexandre" is a saturated purple color with alluring scents of meat, game, bacon, and blueberry. Layered, ripe, and full-flavored on the palate, this lengthy wine will reveal greater complexity with another 2-... Robert Parker. A Syrah wine from Rapel Valley in Chile. 2005 Casa Lapostolle Syrah Cuvee Alexandre 750ml
