Casa Lapostolle Syrah Alexandre Cuvee Chile O'Higgins Cachapoal Valley Syrah 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Lapostolle has introduced a new Cuvée into the family. This is an intense herbal, leathery Shiraz with floral, scented overtones. It has cedary tannins and crisp acids for a taut structure and the extra oak dimension gives a toasty depth and rich finish.

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.
