90 Points - Wine Spectator "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. 10,000 cases imported."

Dunkles Purpurrot. Aromen von schwarzen und roten Johannisbeeren bestechen mit diskreten Noten von Tabak und Kräutern der Provence. Sehr gute Balance zwischen Eichenholz und Frucht. Der Gaumen wird von intensiven, aber weichen Tanninen geradezu attackiert. Dazu eine feine Säure, die zu einer harmonischen Struktur sowie zu einem besonders langem Abgang verhilft.

Stunning purity, with concentrated plum, boysenberry and raspberry fruit that just glides across the palate, buttressed by superfine yet muscular tannins. Suave toast, coconut butter and spice notes along with alluring chocolate and black tea hints chime in on the long finish. A superb combination of fruit and elegance. Drink now through 2009.

Since 1997, when the first version was conceived as the top wine of Casa Lapostolle, Clos Apalta has created a Chilean paradigm. Winemaker Michel Friou and Pomerol guru Michel Rolland craft this red from old Apalta vines, some reaching 80 years old, some material even older than that. In years like rsquo;97 or rsquo;99, Clos Apalta described the regionrsquo;s terrior with super concentration, enormous generosity of flavors, and decadent lushness. In rsquo;01, the blend includes Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and itrsquo;s the best to date. Mineral and black, the winersquo;s focus reaches beyond ripeness and power toward precise balance at a high level. The texture is round, the chocolate-scented tannins firm and elegant supporting full-on blackberry and cassis flavors. An intriguing mineral character surrounds the fruit, giving complexity and depth. Long and intense, as a young wine itrsquo;s almost a painful pleasure. Built for the cellar.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tiefrote Farbe mit violetten Nuancen. Intensives Bouquet von roten Früchten, mit frischen Noten von Rosmarin, weissem Pfeffer und süsslicher Würze. Durch die Eiche bestechen feine Vanillearomen mit einem Hauch von Muskat. Am Gaumen angenehm fruchtige und weiche Tannine, gefolgt von frischer Säure und einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.
