Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexander Apalta Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 Wine Review (PB)

This Chilean cab is a young purple black cherry color wine with rich bready and blackberry fruit on the nose with herbal cab aromas.

In the mouth it is toast, blackberries that are ripe though tightly wound. Tannins are young and need another year anyway. Finishes with some smoky bacon notes and bittersweet chocolate. A nice tasting wine if a bit angular but its not cheap--$22. Raise a glass to Chile and Casa Lapostolle who makes fine wines at whim.
