    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 vintage of this wine was ranked #1 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2008

    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.

    Blend: 78% Carmenere, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    A gorgeous wine that deftly balances polished cassis, dark cherry reduction and blueberry notes on a compact frame. This is structured, with silky tannins lining the long finish that lingers on with hints of apple wood, spice box and underbrush. Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.

    Typically intense, polished and smooth up front, this has concentrated aromas of graphite, cola, wild berry, spice, coconut and wood. It feels full and makes a statement on the palate, where baked, earthy, fully loaded flavors of clove, herb and black fruit hold court. Oaky and spicy on the finish... Cellar Selection.

    Not sure about this bottle. Oak was covering up the favors.
