Winemaker Notes

Rich and dark inked purple red. Very expressive nose with the typical expression coming from our old Carmenère grapes from Apalta. Ripe aromas of black fruit, wild berries combined with rich mocha, vanilla and delicate touches of sage and white sweet spices. It opens with concentrated and velvety tannins towards a juicy mid palate and a long lasting finish. Alive in the mid palate with good acidity and soft, elegant yet concentrated structure. Very long finish full of more fruit flavors.

Decant minimum 1 hour ahead and enjoy at room temperature. Ideal companion for game, lamb, and entrecote fillet. Also good with rich cocoa chocolate desserts.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Ripe and packed, especially for the vintage, with gorgeous blackberry, blueberry and fig fruit flavors liberally laced with bittersweet cocoa and Turkish coffee notes. Muscular but rounded, with briar and mineral notes buried deep on the fleshy finish. An impressive combination of density and purity. Carmenère, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2010 through 2016.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Lapostolle and Michel Rolland pioneered this warm, voluptuous style of wine from Colchagua, a blend of old-vine carmenère, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. The long and dry 2006 season offers a luscious Clos Apalta of ample texture and generous blackberry and chocolate flavors, conveying the sensuality of a woman painted by Rubens. It's easy to enjoy now with pork chops, and will gain complexity with five years in the cellar.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Once again, Clos Apalta distinguishes itself as one of Chile’s best wines. The bouquet is dark and slightly minty, with licorice, shoe polish and ripe, herb-tinged black fruit. Saturated and deep in the mouth, with cola, cassis, black cherry and blackberry flavors. Chewy wine; still has some oak to resolve. Best from 2011.

Today, Lapostolle owns 370 hectares in three different vineyards and produces a total of 200,000 cases spread over Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenere and Syrah. Lapostolle is distributed in more than 60 countries around the world.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
