- Tasted at Wine Spectator New World Wine Experience 2010
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.
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.
Granted this wine needs at least 5-10 years of cellaring to reach its potential it still is stunning in its depth of fruit and structure. Overly tannic when compared to the 2005 I believe in the long run it will show to be a better investment down the road. Veal cheeks, lamb and beef bourguignon pair excellently with this wine. MMmh Good!!!
External Reviews for Lapostolle Clos Apalta
Elegant balance with velvety and well defined tannins, that evolve towards a concentrated mid palate that is filled with juicy tannins followed by a very long persistence.
Lively and fresh, with crushed raspberry and blueberry flavors, and a muscular, smoky finish.
Lots of toast up front, with briar, graphite and blackberry fruit behind. Slightly grainy feel on the finish, but solid for the vintage. Drink now.
A touch jammy, with sweet red berry fruit and mocha-tinged toast. Briary hint on the finish keeps it honest. Drink now.
Full and a bit rough at first, with some heat on the nose. Swirling settles it down, and what comes up are brawny cherry, cassis and chocolate flavors. Very sturdy and tannic, with energy. Significantly less lush and tasty than the benchmark 2003.
Light-bodied and fresh, with good red plum and grape flavors backed by a hint of tobacco on the finish. Drink now.
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 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.
