Casa Lapostolle Tasting Notes |
Deep purple inky red color. On the nose, focused, with a very special purity of fresh black and red fruit and elegant herbs aromas. Elegant and balance on the palate with silky and juicy tannins. More fruit flavors and a very long finish.
Open and leave to breathe for a couple of hours or carefully decant for minimum 1 hour and enjoy at room temperature; 16 to 18ºC (60 to 65°F). Ideal companion for game, lamb, and entrecote fillet. Also good with rich cocoa chocolate deserts.
Blend: 73% Carmenere, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot
Wine Spectator |
Offers gorgeous aromas of crushed plum and boysenberry fruit, with notes of sweet tobacco, mocha and vanilla. Delivers a plush, silky texture through the fruit-filled finish, with a fine, buried minerality. CarmenÃ¨re, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2014. —James Molesworth, 92 points
Wine Enthusiast |
Attractive mint and spice aromas play with herbal black fruit on the firm bouquet, and after that thereâ€™s plenty of blackberry and plum to propel the palate. As always, this is a premier Chilean red blend that grafts pure power to elegance. It may not have the potency and density of fruit of the 2003, but it isnâ€™t lacking. —Michael Schachner, 95 points
