Casa Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Syrah las Kuras Vineyard 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.

Showing a slight colouring at the edge on a mahogany core. Solid intensity on the nose full of complexity. I was very impressed with the initial expression on the nose as it showed no greenness and layers of fruit, leather, and tobacco. The palate showed great structure and balance acidity with softening tannins from a few years in the bottle. Still a young wine that could go for 3-6 more years. I appreciated the fact that it wasn't a fruit bomb. It held a finesse that I look for in a Cab.

Clove, earth and pepper on the nose. Well balanced tannins and smooth finish.

This was is tricky, if you open and even pour thru an aerator it will no taste correctly! To truly see the value in this specific win you will need to let is decant for at least 30 minutes. Then you will really understand why this wine cost soo much. I was sold this bottle in a restaurant in dallas, tx for 70.00 at first I thought I was being ripped off! until it opened up! WOW fantastic deal on fantastic wine.
