Winemaker's Notes

Clos Apalta is a dark and deep inky purple red color. Still young, but opening towards ripe and expressive red fruit, such as plums, red cherries, dry figs and mocha notes. Sweet spices such as vanilla and clover touch towards the finish. With a concentrated structure, this wine has a around and packed attack followed by a pack of velvety and polished tannins filling the mid palate and a ripe and rich long lasting finish.
