Editorial Reviews for Lapostolle Carmenere Casa
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

Tiefe, intensive und purpurrote Farbe. In der Nase intensive und komplexe Aromen nach Pfeffer und roten Früchten am Anfang. Danach Pflaumen und schwarze Kirschen mit einem Hauch von süssen Gewürzen. Im Gaumen reizvolle Tannine mit einer sanften Struktur. Sehr gut ausbalanciert. Frische Fruchtaromen im Abgang.
Lapostolle is the property of the French family Marnier Lapostolle and was founded in 1994 by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle along with her husband Cyril de Bournet. Today Lapostolle owns 380 hectares of vineyards.
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 6-7 years.
Displays herb-tinged dark fruit aromas as well as flavors. Medium-bodied, it coats the palate with its blackberry dominated personality then tightens to a slightly rustic finish. Drink it over the next 3 years.
Lively and fresh, with crushed raspberry and blueberry flavors, and a muscular, smoky finish.
Dichtes Purpurrot.Harmonisch durch ausdrucksstarke Aromen von roten Früchten, die neben den würzigen Noten vom Eichholz stehen. Weiche Tannine schmeicheln dem Gaumen und geben dem Wein mit ausgewogener Säure eine gute Struktur.
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.
