    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 93% Carmenere and 7% Cabernet. The vines are 60 years old and adjacent to Casa Lapostolle's Clos Apalta vineyards.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is ripe and polished, with a delicious core of black Mission fig, macerated black currant and dark plum fruit, all woven with alluring licorice snap, black tea and roasted mesquite notes. The long, fleshy finish lets a tobacco note take over. Carmenère and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2011.

    Wine Spectator

    ($15; 93% carmenere and 7% cabernet sauvignon) Ruby-red. High-pitched dark berry preserves and spices on the nose, accompanied by complicating notes of pipe tobacco and rose. Lively black raspberry and mulberry flavors show good clarity and pick up a hint of black pepper with air. Very fresh wine with good finishing cut and spicy persistence
