    Region: Chile, South America

    Varietal: Merlot

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 95380

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: Bright and deep red ruby with a purple robe.

    Nose: Apalta's vineyard fruit expression as its best. Plums, cherries, blackberries and blackcurrant with sweet spices coming from elegant French oak aromas. Black spices from the Carmenere gives a unique and complex addition.

    Mouth: Powerful and deep structure that surprises. Soft and chewy palate that evolve towards a long and pleasant finish with a very well achieved balance.

    Food pairing: Ready to drink now or cellar for several years. Decant before serving. Ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Muscular, with broad cocoa and plum sauce notes leading the way for an ample core of currant confiture and licorice. The rock-solid finish will need some cellaring to stretch out. Best from 2009 through 2011. 20,337 cases made.

    Cuvée Alexandre is one of Chile’s best Merlots, and consistency is its main virtue. Every year it shows fine ripeness, weight and enough complexity to draw attention. In 2006 the wine offers graphite, spice and blackberry aromas backed by lively black currant, blackberry and bitter chocolate flavors. A yummy wine with a touch of butter and vanilla on the finish. Drink now through 2010.

    Exotic aromas of red- and blackcurrant, raisin bread and baking spices. Lush, gently sweet dark berry flavors are enlivened by cracked pepper and a sexy cinnamon quality. Packs serious punch but carries no excess weight. The finish repeats the spicy note and lingers impressively.
