Clos Apalta is the ultimate expression of Casa Lapostolle's dedication to quality made from the best grapes from our Apalta vineyard. This wine, not produced every year, is a belnd of Merlot, Carmenere, and Cabernet Sauvignon from 60-100 year old pre-phylloxera vines.
International Wine CellarDeep ruby. Oak-spicy aromas of clove, nutmeg, cocoa powder, espresso and raspberry preserves. The intense spice character carries through in the mouth, where there's a sweet red berry tone and lush, silky texture. This clearly has great material and is plenty sweet but it's a shame that the wood is so dominant.
