Lapostolle Clos Apalta 2000
Bordeaux Red Blends
from Chile, South America
Number 3 of Wine Spectator's 2003 Top 100 Wines!
Color: The color is intense and the density is readily apparent.
Aroma: The bouquet provides an explosion of red fruit, blackberry, black cherry and vibrant notes of raspeberry. The oak aging contributes a toasted vanilla and balsamic-like element in the nose. Then, instead of dispersing, all the scents blend together to give greater complexity, precious wood and cedar notes.
Flavor: In the mouth, the first impression is density and volume. The wine is round, full and very concentrated. Slowly, a gentle tannic structure appears which provides the wine with a solid and well-structured character. The finish is long, velvety and silky.
