Again, an excellent, complex, wonderfully balanced wine. Exquisite! - Tasted at Nora's Wine Bar 1/9/10
Great bargain cab from the Rapel Valley in Chile. Strong hints on the nose and palate of strawberries and other dark berries, cassis and some nice tannins which should ensure the decade age-worthiness the label claims.
Very nice nose and a fairly long finish. Very good inexpensive cab.

Very nice wine. Round and full, nice fruit, nice mid palette, great nose of black cherry, white pepper, and even a little blueberry. Smooth and a long interesting finish with great mouth feel.
A LOT of strawberry on the nose and pallet, very enjoyable. Definitely some good tannins, could be worth aging a bit. Finishes on some spicy/earthy notes to me, but discreet.

Gehaltvoll und konzentriert, mit vielschichtigem Bouquet und reich am Gaumen mit Aromen reifer, roter Früchte, gerösteter Eiche und einer Spur von Kaffee.
Wine Tasting NotesIntense red ruby color. An expressive nose with elegant aromas of red fruits like ripe strawberries and currant. In mouth the "attaque" is perfumed with red and black fruits, such as blackberries and cherries. In the medium palate this elegant wine is supported by a really good structure with fine and delicate tannins. The end of mouth is persistent and suggests coffee notes.
(includes 15% carmenere) Exotic aromas of red- and blackcurrant, raisin bread and baking spices. Lush, gently sweet dark berry flavors are enlivened by cracked pepper and a sexy cinnamon quality. Packs serious punch but carries no excess weight. The finish repeats the spicy note and lingers impressively. Muscular, with broad cocoa and plum sauce notes leading the way for an ample core of currant confiture and licorice. The rock-solid finish will need some cellaring to stretch out. Best from 2009 through 2011. 20,337 cases made. -JM Cuvée Alexandre is one of Chile's best Merlots, and consistency is its main virtue. Every year it shows fine ripeness, weight and enough complexity to draw attention. In 2006 the wine offers graphite, spice and blackberry aromas backed by lively black currant, blackberry and bitter chocolate flavors. A yummy wine with a touch of butter and vanilla on the finish. Drink now through 2010. - M.S. The 2006 Merlot Apalta Vineyard "Cuvee Alexandre", a purple-colored offering with aromas of cedar, spice box, black cherry, and black currant. This is followed by a smooth-textured, ripe Merlot with ample savory black fruits, good depth, and a moderately long finish. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
Here is an award-winning Bordeaux blend based on the Carmenère variety, which used to be widely planted in Bordeaux and now thrives in Chile. The wine is made from the estate's oldest vines, the berries picked and de-stemmed by hand for the highest possible quality. A big and age-worthy red wine.
Ripe and packed, especially for the vintage, with gorgeous blackberry, blueberry and fig fruit flavors liberally laced with bit�tersweet cocoa and Turkish coffee notes. Muscular but rounded, with briar and mineral notes buried deep on the fleshy finish. Impressive combination of density and purity. Carmenere, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2010 through 2016.
