Nice Chardonnay a little more 'toasty' on the back than I wanted...but I do want to try this again
i am lost to as why it is described as a 'dessert' wine. not at all, but a solid, dinner wine.
Complex, red fruit and cherry yields to prune with a backdrop of oak. Finishes with slight chalk. Tannins are well structured but slightly overbearing. Melliws well with some air to make a fine table wine.
Consistently an amazing wine. this one is a little young, but based on the track record of the wine, I am sure will show its stuff in a few years.

"Casa Lapostolle Cabernet Sauvignon Rapel 2008 is rich purple red in color. The nose is of expressive red fruit notes
I always love a good Carménère. The best ones are full-flavored without being overly heavy, and have lots of lovely layers of spice and herbaceous notes on top of the rich black fruit. And when I'm looking for a terrific Carménère for under $15, the Casa Lapostolle has always been my first choice. The pepper and cloves are pretty powerful, but there are lots of deep currant and black cherry notes, and the result is complex and intriguing, rather than unbalanced. My favorite pairing is spicy paella with lots of green and red peppers, but I can easily see pairing this with barbecued chicken or Polish sausage, and it's excellent with grilled vegetable-based dishes as well.
Carmenere was originally a blending grape in Bordeaux, but since its arrival in Chile it has really evolved and stands alone as a varietal. This wine from Casa Lapostolle is very impressive! It has a beautiful crimson red color, and aromas of dark fruit and spice that jump out of the glass. Pronounced flavors of black cherries and blackberries abound, with a long, gorgeous finish laced with spice and earth. Although the wine is dense, it is soft on the palate and nicely balanced. Drink this wine with braised lamb shanks.
Inky ruby. Ripe aromas of cassis, blueberry, dark chocolate and spicecake. Lush and broad, with seductive sweetness and good lift to the dark berry and cherry flavors. Finishes sweet, with good creamy length and fine tannins.
Very friendly, with ripe raspberry and boysenberry fruit laced with a streak of cocoa powder. Not complex, but focused and tasty. 15 percent Merlot. Drink now.
One of the best value-priced, big and rich wines you're likely to find. The nose impresses with potent blackberry, cedar and marzipan aromas, and the palate bridges the gap between power and elegance. Tastes great, with herbal black cherry and cola leading the way. Very ripe but really well made.
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.
Von sahniger Struktur, vollmundig, mit einer wohlausgeglichenen Note von tropischen Früchten, Pfirsich und Eiche.
