Why We're Buying
Viña Lapostolle, formerly Casa Lapostolle, took Chilean wine to stratospheric heights with Clos Apalta. In fact, it's the first and only wine from South America to rank number one on Wine Spectator's Top 100 list.
So aromatic and fresh with dried flowers, sweet tobacco and hints of straw. Red fruit, cloves and green peppercorns. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins that are very fresh and refined. Fine, silky and beautiful. Hints of minerals and granite to the dark fruit. Such gorgeous length and beauty. 64% carmenere, 18% cabernet franc and 18% merlot. Extremely long and poised. Cooler wine. From biodynamically grown grapes. Delicious to drink already, but another three to four years will make it even better.
