Showing a slight colouring at the edge on a mahogany core. Solid intensity on the nose full of complexity. I was very impressed with the initial expression on the nose as it showed no greenness and layers of fruit, leather, and tobacco. The palate showed great structure and balance acidity with softening tannins from a few years in the bottle. Still a young wine that could go for 3-6 more years. I appreciated the fact that it wasn't a fruit bomb. It held a finesse that I look for in a Cab.

This was is tricky, if you open and even pour thru an aerator it will no taste correctly! To truly see the value in this specific win you will need to let is decant for at least 30 minutes. Then you will really understand why this wine cost soo much. I was sold this bottle in a restaurant in dallas, tx for 70.00 at first I thought I was being ripped off! until it opened up! WOW fantastic deal on fantastic wine.

A Merlot wine from Rapel Valley in Chile. 2004 Casa Lapostolle Merlot Cuvee Alexandre 750ml

This elegant Chardonnay is delicately perfumed with hints of white flower and yellow fruit, yet on the palate it becomes assertive, with a round, full mouthfeel and a long, lovely finish.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Intense and dark, inky purple with deep purple shades. Nose: Powerful, rich aromas of jammy red and black fruits and berries. Meaty qualities of bacon fat balanced against spice & floral qualities towards the end with framing notes of nutmeg and vanilla from the well integrated oak. Overall, very complex and attractive. Palate: Concentrated & very well balanced with soft, velvety tannins lingering in the mouth. Very rich mid palate and a long finish. Goes very well with rich red meat such as lamb, beef and wild boar.
