Dark fruit aromas, blackberry, black cherry, black currants with a touch of spice. On the palate heavy dark fruit, full textured body, some leather and cedar notes, tannic structure well, a little meaty, loads of darkness, hot cocoa, some heat, would be amazing with steak night.

smooth and filled with berries at first and then a kick of spices and cloves with a meaty tannic finish, has amazing potential to age longer

bottle says it can age for 10 years... thats questionable to say the least. This wine isnt bad, dirty nose, bark, stone, plummy. For the $ its a solid pick.

I can't quite remember exactly how this bottle tasted (no, I didn't black out from getting shit-faced) as it was awhile ago and I never reviewed it sooner. Other than the label, the wine doesn't stick out in my memory too much; therefore, I know it was a good bottle of wine but not the best...this review isn't helpful at all.

Autumn berries fruits with hints of cinnamon with young and intense bright purple red. Very clean and intense aromas with delightfully fresh red fruit and black pepper dominating the nose. Well structured and juicy tannins that evolve towards a fresh and mouth-watering natural acidity in the mid palate. The finish is long and shows a light touch of oak. Just fantastic with pasta cannelloni bolognese, and light red meats. Great for garden and entertainment.

Good solid Cab. Tight structure, nicely balanced - not too tannic. Cherry/berry fruit with hints of coffee bean/cocoa. Nice clean finish. Let it breath a for a bit. A steal at under 10 bucks.

The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon has intense blackberry and cassis liqueur-like aromas. Medium to full-bodied and mouth-staining, this satin-textured wine is crammed with copious quantities of dark fruits. Seamless, with no hard edges, this excellent value is a well-structured, powerfully flavored wine for drinking over the next 6ndash;7 years.

This friendly red offers a nice beam of briar, raspberry and blackberry fruit, wrapped with judicious toast on the finish. Drink now.

Buttery and rich, this is probably Lapostolle's best Chardonnay to date; it has sweet, alluring baked pear, apple and peach aromas followed by an intensely toasty but balanced palate that shows flavors of papaya, banana, pear and fine French oak. A wine to drink as soon as you can pop the cork.

Delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Casa Lapostolle in Chile, that’s always a great value. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 5% Carmenere and 2% Cabernet Franc, a portion is aged if French oak for added complexity. It drinks soft, supple and ripe. Recently scored 90 points in the Wine Enthusiast Magazine and of course selected as a Best Buy. The review reads “A perennial Best Buy Cab. The nose is smoky and rock-solid, with clean berry fruit and muscle. The palate is lively and secure, with balance, firm tannins, proper acidity and a tasty mix of cocoa, herbs and berry fruit. Finishes on the spot. Top flight in the under-$15 category.”

Inviting nose of crushed raspberry and dark chocolate follows through on the palate, with juicy texture and honest tannins providing contour to the finish. Very solid. Hard to find a better deal in Cabernet. Drink now through 2004.

In a bold, toasty style, with notes of nutmeg, pie crust and pear tartine, but has the acidity to pull it off. Good job.

In der Nase attraktiv und sehr intensive Aromen wie Früchte, schwarzer Pfeffer und Gewürze. Im Gaumen überzeugt er durch aussergewöhnliche Konzentration. Ein herrlicher Wein mit einem langen Finish.
