Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexander Apalta Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Wine Review (NW)
Dark plum, blackberry, and dark chocolate
Full bodied and dense
Dark berries, herbs, coffee, and dark chocolate
Here's a classic Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a dense core of fruit along with coffee and dark chocolate accents.
In my experience, this wine has been reliable from year to year, and the 2006 is no exception. Expect to pay around $20, although the list price is even a bit higher. Raise a glass!
