Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Syrah 2007
Syrah/Shiraz from Chile, South America
The color is an intense and dark inky red color with purple shades Nose: Intense and complex nose with a punch of solid black fruit, white pepper, honey and rosemary aromas. Palate: Concentrated body with rich tannins, very round mid palate and more fruit at the finish. Very long persistence in the palate.
Food Pairing: 60°F to 64°F. Ideal companion for game and lamb well seasoned dishes. Sourced from our own vineyards, Cuvée Alexandre wines express our dedication to quality and the expression of the Terroir of Lapostolle.
Dark and ripe, with mulled currant and fig fruit, but also a juicy, sanguine streak that helps to frame it, while alluring black tea and espresso notes fill in on the rich finish. Drink now through 2011.
Opens with heavy aromas of raisin, prune, leather and chocolate. The palate is just racy enough, with depth, big tannins and structure. Tastes grapy and big, with blackberry fruit and a chocolaty aftertaste. Toasty and a little gritty and tannic on the finish, and ultimately it's a little sweet but still impressive for Chilean Syrah.
