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

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
External Reviews for Lapostolle Canto de Apalta Red Blend
Intense purple color. Expressive nose full of fresh red fruit along with tobacco, cedar and tea leaf towards the finish. Fresh attack on the palate and a medium body. Finishing with very juicy tannins. The ideal companion for pastas, pork and grilled
A dense, flashy red, displaying a toasty frame of fine tannins, with grilled herb and baking spice notes to the racy cassis, kirsch and plum skin flavors. Well-cut, with ample acidity and a minerally finish.
The winery is 100% gravity-fed spanning six levels. This rare vertical design allows the wine to flow naturally downward during every stage of the production, avoiding the need to pump, which can adversely affect the subtle flavours of the wine.
A rich, smoky red, sporting dark cassis, grilled fig and macerated cherry notes to the iron, smoke and dark spice flavors that linger through the mocha-tinged finish. Carmenère, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2015.
This is a new wine from Lapostolle, bearing a nose that’s intense and compact, with mineral and dark fruit aromas. It feels rich and muscular but not heavy, with berry, licorice, buttery oak and vanilla flavors. The finish is minty and chocolaty tasting. Carmenère, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah make up the blend.
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.
This friendly red offers a nice beam of briar, raspberry and blackberry fruit, wrapped with judicious toast on the finish. Drink now.
