Deep, intense red-ruby color. Aromatic nose with lots of mature and cooked red fruit flavors. Very characteristic of the classical Casa Lapostolle Merlot, with a harmonious concentration and freshness. In the mouth, this medium-bodied wine shows good structure, with supple and refined tannins leading to a spicy, cherry finish. Can be enjoyed right now, but can be aged, like most of the 99 vintage wines, for several years.
