Winemaker Notes

#42 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2014 and the 2005 vintage of this wine was #1 on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2008

Dark and deep inky purple red color. Still young, but opening on the nose towards ripe and expressive red and black fruit, such as plums, red cherries, dry figs and blueberries. Also, spices such as vanilla, clover and white pepper. With a concentrated structure, this wine has a round and packed... View More

Critical Acclaim

JS 97
James Suckling

The aromas in this wine are phenomenal with slate, blackberry, blue granite and lead pencil. Violet too. Full body, with seamless tannins and dense and reserved structure. It needs about three or four years to soften. 100% new wood and aged 26 months. From 71% carmenere, 15% cabernet sauvignon, and 11% merlot. From biodynamically grown grapes.

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Big and rich, this red is filled with powerful flavors of blackberry, dark currant, black olive and dark chocolate that are built on an ironclad frame. Notes of cocoa powder and cream chime in as well, and the muscular finish lingers with hints of savory herb. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2022.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Alluring aromas of cigar box, cedar shavings, olive and berry fruits are magnetic with this Carmenère-led blend. In its youth, it is pushy and vibrant in the mouth. Flavors of tobacco, chocolate and leafy, lightly herbal berry fruits finish smooth, long and with just enough acidic cut. Drink through 2022.

WW 92
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

The 2010 Lapostolle Clos Apalta is quite a luxurious red wine. Layered, with loads of ripe fruit and oak, this wine shows plenty of tannins still. The wine's lasting richness makes it a superb candidate with well-charred beef. Drinking well now. (Tasted: August 18, 2016, San Francisco, CA)
