Great bargain cab from the Rapel Valley in Chile. Strong hints on the nose and palate of strawberries and other dark berries, cassis and some nice tannins which should ensure the decade age-worthiness the label claims.

Nice, rich oakey. The descriptions above are spot on (WS).

Lots of dark fruit on the nose is bolstered by cola, herb and mint notes. The palate is snappy and nice, with broad scope, a kiss of oak and ripe dark-fruit flavors. The finish is a little peppery and drying, yet the fruit hangs in there for a while before fading away comfortably. Another good-for-the-money Cabernet from Lapostolle.

Light-bodied and fresh, with good red plum and grape flavors backed by a hint of tobacco on the finish. Drink now.

Medium red. Red berries and spiced plum on the nose, with a light mineral quality adding energy. Silky in texture, with midweight raspberry and bitter chocolate flavors and good finishing grip. Attractively fresh wine.

Am Gaumen ein dichter, samtiger, sinnlicher Wein. Die integrierten Tannine verleihen dem Wein die Feinheit und die weiche Struktur. Der Abgang ist lang und seidig.

A touch jammy, with sweet red berry fruit and mocha-tinged toast. Briary hint on the finish keeps it honest. Drink now.


External Review

Firm, toasty aromas blend well with cherry and plum notes. The palate is healthy in feel, with good depth and balance. Tastes lightly herbal, but the heavy lifting is handled by black fruit and chocolate flavors. Peppery on the finish and very solid as a whole.
