Editorial Reviews for Lapostolle Cabernet Cuvee Alexandre
More redux, light grassy top note, little sweet toasty spice, plummy, spicy with a hint of sweet spices and a suggestion of pepper. Soft on the palate and loose, aromatic in the mouth. Nice violet, mulberry fruit. Perfumed up front then not a huge finish, juicy on the back end. 85pts
Very nice vanilla laced nose, firm nose, lean fruit framed with tight grained wood tones, snappy, clear, lovely transparency, lovely precision to the fruit, blue and red fruit, lots of tannins which are a bit dry but there is an innate sweetness here, lovely purity to the fruit, aromatic length, love to see this relax, 90pts
Very precise and focused on the nose with a fine, sweet herbal edge and some cedar oak hightones framing a core of tomato and currant fruit. Smooth and moderately rich considering its mid-weight size, this covers the palate with chocolate toned plum and red currant fruit. there's a gentle, and slightly creamy, oak note here as this flows to a clean, fresh and moderately long finish with a nice pop of candied berry fruit on the finale. Shows a nice blend of sophistication and purity. 87pts
The nose shows pepper dark fruit and stones with a similar palate that leads into a dry pepper finish.
a smokiness with red raspberries coursing underneath mixed with darker berry fruit, nice spice notes, beautifully balanced with a hot finish
Raspberry, blueberry, soil, and pencil shavings on the nose. Shows a fleshy mouthfeel, with red and blue fruit up front. Some bitterness and menthol on a medium plus finish. Very young wine, but not flagrantly new world in style. There's plenty of old-school rustic earthiness to balance the fruit. Overall a decent drink the ends with a question mark.
Big and rich, fresh and juicy. Wonderful value. Strong blackberry aroma with hints of cedar and cherry. Powerful palate with continued blackberry that slowly evolves into a velvety finish. Hints of cherry and cola. Great example of a Carmenere.
The nose showed wild berries, pepper and undergrowth with a cloak of dark oak. On the palate, a dense, velvety wave of dark chocolate, blackberry and green pepper washed across the senses. The long finish showed tart berries.
Dense in the glass. At first, it has a roasty, gamy nose. very savory. Some hints of green herbs. Some funky earth notes. Musty. Some nutmeg and pepper along with purple and red fruit. On the palate, there's big acid. It's young and vibrant and a bit bracing. Very ripe fruit. It's got a rich texture amidst lingering acidity. A tad young for my style, but some time and air on it and it continues to improve.
Good cabernet, average for the price $12.99

Chunky Cab, with dark raspberry and blackberry fruit pushed by firm cocoa and toast notes. More dark, bacony toast on the finish. Solid, if a bit square in the end.
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Estate bottled single vineyard Cabernet from Wine Enthusiast Magazine's 2008 New World Winery of the Year. The Apalta Vineyard is the gem of the estate in Chile's Colchagua Valley, with deeply rooted grapevines up to 60 years old. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot slowly macerated over four weeks then aged 14 months in French oak barrels, 75% new. An Editor's Choice, WE scored it 91 points saying "As always, this wine exhibits power and intensity, with leather, earth and beefy dark fruit making for an alluring bouquet. Round and ripe in the mouth, with big-time cherry and chocolate accents. A wine with true star power, and the lasting notes of smoke and charcoal are the real deal."
Leuchtend rot, lila eingefärbte Farbe. In der Nase würzig, reif von roten und schwarzen Beeren mit einer leichten Note von Tabak und Schokolade. Der Geschmack ist saftig und rund im Gaumen, mit einer samtigen Textur, im Nachgeschmack rote Früchte und würzige Aromen.

WineMaker's Tasting Notes: Color: Deep violet color with purple hints. Nose: Intense and complex nose full of aromas: white pepper and red fruit at the start, then prunes and black cherries with some hints of sweet spices. Palate: Juicy tannins with soft structure and balance; fresh fruit flavors at the finish. Service and Food Pairing: Serve from 16° C (60° F) to 18° C (64° F). The ideal companion for pastas, pork and grilled red meat.
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.
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.
Color: Deep red with dark purple hints. Nose: Intense and expressive nose with garnet and fresh red fruit, but yet elegant with subtle sweet spiced from a well integrated oak. Palate: Intense mouth feel with a broad tannic structure, lingering towards fresh red fruit flavors. A concentrated body, which will enable a long bottle ageing. Service and Food Pairing: Ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.
