2005 Casa Lapostolle Merlot Cuvée Alexandre Apalta Vineyard

Estate: Casa Lapostolle
Region: Colchagua Valley, Rapel Valley, Chile
Vineyard: Apalta Vineyard

Tasting Note:December 27, 2016

Deep garnet red with a super dark core. Nose was pretty mute, with only soft notes of dark prunes, dark cocoa and dust. Moderate tannins (6/10) and medium bodied. A little bit of dark fruit on the attack that thinned out quickly and turned a bit prueed. A nice amount of burnt leather and bitter dark cocoa. Another unusual finish that we cannot quite put our finger on. Medium plus finish.

Made of 85% Merlot and 15% Carmenere. Aged for 8 months in 20% new French oak barrels.
